WARNING!!! The following contains graphic pictures of plant carnage. If you are a gardener, especially in the Seattle area, this may cause nightmares, insomnia or other sleeping disorders.
The snowmen have all had meltdowns, and we've finally dug out from the 9+ inches of snow and ice Mother Nature dumped on us during the last 2 weeks. We actually had a white Christmas here in Seattle--according to local news sources, only the 6th we've had since the 1890s.
Today we took a stroll around the garden to see how things had fared after all that snow and several weeks of temps in the teens and 20s. It was not pretty. Not pretty at all. If you click on the name of the plant you can see how it looked during our November Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day post.
We're hoping the hardier perennials in the shade garden fared better. I guess we'll find out in spring.
