Brown, brown and more brown...

This is a continuation of yesterday's post showcasing an assortment of freeze damage plants from my yard.

I'm not sure if my monstera suffered stem damage or if just the foliage was damaged.

This beautiful purple orchid tree was just about ready to bloom. I know I will have to cut it back at least half this spring.

Anyone who grows passion flower vines knows what a challenge it is to keep them under control. Maybe this freeze was a blessing in disguise for this one. This variety had climbed to the top of the palm trees and was getting ready to cover my house.

These philodendrons look really sad. I need reduce this planting by half and I have put if off for a couple of years. Looks like this spring will be an ideal time to cut them back.

I doubt I'll have any fresh pineapples till fall.I guess I won't be serving fresh pina coladas to my guests this summer.

From blue to brown in just one night! Oh well, plumbago will bounce back quickly after I cut it back.

My golden yellow tabebuia tree does not look that great right now. I'm not sure if the wood was damaged. I hope not because it is my favorite spring flowering tree.

My thumbergia vine was putting on quite a show when the freeze struck. I also have several types of passion flower vines mixed in with this mess. I noticed one was not even phased by the cold. I'll have to identify it when it blooms.

This zamia, or cardboard palm as it is often called, suffered a major setback.

Well that is enough depressing photos for now. Tomorrow I'll post my post freeze brug pics. They will really depress you.

Anyone want to join me for a yard cleaning party next month?
