The color of my garden this winter is mush. Do you know how many colors of mush there are? Let me show you ....

droopy green Ginger mush

golden brown Hydrangea mush

brownish green Canna Lily mush

grayish brown Crinum Lily mush

and finally
brown-used-to-be-bright-yellow Philodendron mush

I think the Philodendron is done for,
but all the rest should come back in the spring.


  1. I am so so sorry for you. I know and hate the plant as ooz sight after a killing frost. Hope some come back.

  2. Oh my, I can certainly relate! That mush color gets old fast. My problem is trying to restrain myself from cutting it all down. I'm afraid if I do, they'll start growing again and then we'll get another freeze. I'm trying to hang on here!

    We have a lot of mush here in California as well. And as of 8:50 this morning, we also have a Walnut tree through our office's kitchen roof. What a January!!!! Good to see your post.
