RE: All right You Chanuks!!!!

Dan try to remove all of the frozen material from each clump.  I was not
brave enough to look at the damage today.  Since tonight is going to be even
colder, I decided to just wait until tomorrow and let it all hit me at once.
Maybe that way the individual pains will not be so bad.

This is the second consecutive year that our Japanese Maples have frozen.
Last year the damage was so great that some did not recover.  even though
the freeze is about the exact time as last year the trees are not as far
along so I hope that they will be alright this time.

My semp garden is looking better every time we have one these late freezes.
While the rest of the garden is covered ( it took Roy and I one full day to
get everything covered )I am enjoying looking at the semp garden.  If they
do as well this year as last, I am looking forward to an amazing display
next spring.  Some of the clumps are fascinating.

Last night's hard freeze did not leave me untouched.  Many of the
plantagenia and their kin look freeze-dried to me.  This is a new experience
for this newbie.  In the past I covered and escaped damage.  This time - no
such luck!

I remember someone relaying to cut the plants back, but do not remember how
far to cut them.  Do I cut them back to the crown, or what?

Maybe it is a sign of age - I remember the lesson, just not the content!
