I agree, what a brutal morning! At least it was dry though.
Oh, get a room you two!

The Akebia fruit is delicious, very creamy. To me it almost reminds me of pudding. We fought over the last one this year, our 4 year old won! We have ours growing up lattice outside our downstairs door. With as cold as it was last year around here, it suffered no effects of the cold and wind.
I know we have some other weird, uncommon stuff. I'll have to pull tree listing.
Oh..this is great!! I will look into these companies..Thank you so much for sharing!!
