Our Record Breaking Winter Rewards

This was a record breaking winter here in Michigan. These are some images of our rewards.

Evergreens are a lovely golden crispy brown, Boxwood's are a  nice variegation of tan and green, some are all tan and crispy. 

Roses have died back to the roots. Holly's are a copper color, and ornamental grasses are slow to show new growth if any at all. Magnolias are blooming, but sadly.

Baltic Ivy which is usually evergreen here is just a mess of dead leaves.

These are just a few of my observations as I begin my gardening season, who knows what else will show up later. 
 Our record breaking winter meant a disastrous spring for us.
