It’s hard to choose a picture to lead with when writing a blog post on ones garden being severely devastated by spring hail. The shredded leaves broken blooms and fallen branches are everywhere you turn. I cried earnestly twice but mostly for most of all for the hostas, all of them ruined. Here is a short tour through the sad mess left behind.
I have no idea what I will do about many of those plants, some will have to be completely removed others pruned to the ground. They is so much clean-up… The hail (the size of nickels) did not fall for very long but its impact will be felt the entire season. I am extremely discouraged if not devastated right now. In all this mess a big shout out to my girlfriend Talitha who came to console me even before we went to check out the carnage in her own garden (just as bad).
