Not real exciting, but better then just dead leaves and grass

Nice photos Ginger! Looks like they might all get damaged tonight though. Grumbling

I saw many gorgeous little leafless small trees just covered in tiny white flowers yesterday on our way to the property. Did not have time to stop & photo on the way home. Now I'm kicking myself because I think they will all be frozen tonight & that will be the end of that. Based upon my memory & some research I believe they are Wild Plums --- native --- Prunus umbellata --- flatwoods plum. Do you have them?

Also, a question. The turkey oaks have swollen leaf buds ready to pop. If they freeze then what will happen? Will the trees bud out again? What?
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Thanks Ginger. I have to get me some of those plums. What pretty little trees! I know their blooms won't last long but they have such a pretty shape & then the fruit too. I think I'm in love. Lovey dubby

My Silk Floss tree that turned out to be NOT a Silk Floss tree is now serving as a holder for my staghorn fern; it was in dire need of being released from the chains that were choking the tree from which it was hanging.
