Ice in the fountain

Ice, Charleston, S.C.
We are such babies about weather in the lowcountry and it doesn't take much to send us into an Ice Storm tizzy. Our homes and roads simply aren't prepared to deal with cold and icy weather since we get it so infrequently. My azaleas were already starting to bud. Thursday night was our coldest and this was what the fountain in the courtyard at the hospital looked like.

I pulled all the protective blankets and sheets off my plants this morning because I understand it is supposed to be close to 70 degrees by tomorrow. That is enough of that!
