Magnolia watch (Magnolia denudata, Yulan magnolia)

29F last night didn't blacken the magnolias; they look as good as they have ever looked. Starting tomorrow night it's going to be above freezing for a while. The thing is, that leaves tonight; tonight the forecast low is 26F. That is so on the edge. Actually it's a degree or two too cold. But maybe we'll get lucky. It doesn't look too good. Right now it's 41F with strong winds from the NW. That's where the cold comes from. It'll all be over in 15 hours one way or the other.
