No laughing matter

A few weeks ago I reported that the cypress were greening out.

That suddenly seems to have stopped!

An inauspicious start?

Usually verdant spring cypress
have remained in their
dormant state.

I was shocked to learn (and see for myself) that all the recently greened out cypress needles had browned and fallen to the ground all in a single night, returning what once were verdant green forests back into their dormant winter state ...

Or are they dead?

April in the swamp, really? 
Spring looks downright foolish
without green trees.
Whatever it is going on …

This has the makings of one heck of a cruel joke!
