Our ficus didn’t do so well in the recent ‘freeze’ (4 or 5 nights of below zero temperatures). We missed the first night which did all the damage, but managed to cover the trees for the remainder, running some halogen lamps under the covers to keep the trees warm. There are a few spots of life, and we’re hoping we don’t lose this tree entirely

The leaves are now mostly brown, which provides great camouflage for this pair of sparrows, waiting to come down to the feeder.
