Call It a Comeback

Just last week, all of the blooms on my Magnolia ("Betty") appeared brown and shriveled from the late frost. While it was bred to bloom in May to avoid this, it always blooms early, and this year that meant February! There must have been plenty of unopened buds hidden, because I went away for five days and returned to nearly full bloom. Now I'll get my favorite part--pink mulch, for a few days at least!
