Fire and Ice

Well, actually that should be ice and fire.  It was really cold in Napa last week.  I believe there were five days in a row of freezing temperatures.  Now it is pushing 94 and really hot.  

The last post showed a Cab Franc bud coming to life.  Now look at him : (top photo 4/16/09)

The tissues in the plant freeze causing the cells to explode.  It sort of looks burned and wilted.

Here he is today (pic on the bottom) after a couple of really nice sunny days:

Not nearly as much damage as I expected.  A few little dead leaves but I think he'll be alright.
