Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

 Temperatures dropped into the 20s overnight last night which meant frost this morning.

The bleeding heart got the worst of it.

Look how it looked before in my header and below on Sunday.

Now - I don't know whether I should trim it back or not. Tom, what do you advise?

In other news, the white iris that Vicki Lane sent me last year has buds.

I imagine I find other casualties of the frost as I work in the garden later today.
