Freezing Watery Wednesday!!

Record breaking temperatures in North Florida..Brrrrrrrrrrr! It got down to 25 this morning! On the national news this morning it said it is colder where I am than in New York City. This is how the Sunflower Tree looks this morning, it is supposed to recover quickly, we'll see about that.
My frosty car at 6:30 this morning.
When the temperature drops below freezing my husband turns the sprinkler on the trees to make icicles for me. No, it doesn't kill the trees, we do it every year.Our pear tree got the special treatment last night.
We think it's pretty.

Cool! I would never have thought of making my own icicles! I think I will wait and let nature do it...but not yet I hope!

Leedra said...

He did that just so you could show us icicles for Watery Wednesday. He spoils you (so does mine!) It feels great, doesn't it?

Never thought of making my own icicles either. That's really neat. Does make for great photos! Enjoyed them much.

Wow! Icicles in Florida! I hope your flowers survive. I think it went down to 20 here last night.

Poor sunflower I hope the leaves don't fall off, that is what happens here. It was only 30 in Arkansas this morning.

Darla: That is truely amazing, that you would be that cold. This global warming only seems to work at certain times. That has to be hard on the flowers.

Wooo---just read that it got down to 25 in Florida. Hope it didn't do too much damage to the citrus. Love your icicles!!!
