Ceanothus Survives The Ice

Back in January and February of this year the Ceanothus which grows outside our kitchen window was caked in ice for weeks on end. This photo really only shows the start of the ice, it gradually built up to be much thicker than shown here.




















We really began to wonder if this bush would survive, especially as one the ice had gone many of the leaves where brown and dead.

We're delighted it seems to have come out of this bad winter completely unscathed and it is covered in stunning bright blue flowers again this week.
