More icy days

Plants hardy enough to grow in our neck of the woods not only withstand abuse, but seem to wear the affront as an adornment.

Ice, even to this degree may very well leave plants unharmed. It is often no more detrimental than cold air temps. However, it can be heavy, especially in unmanaged fruit trees which is why routine pruning can save a healthy limb from being broken of a full tree brought to the ground. A properly cared for orchard or berry patch allows you to instead wander about and appreciate the beauty.
