Alas, they are no more.  I blame myself, I never gave it a second thought, when e-mailing Darrell from Turkey, to tell him to water them in my absence.

As French gardeners, in France, have been known to say in such situations “Quelle dommage, ils est mort”

I don’t think there is anything we can do, but I thought I would try them in our little green house for a while, perhaps the warmth will revive them.

Poor Darrell is very upset, but I’ve explained to him that Mother Nature can be cruel at times, and not every fledgling Christmas Tree is destined to "deck the halls".

Aw that's a shame. My little Christmas tree didn't fare much better one year.
If they DO revive, I think you can consider that your Christmas miracle ;)

I don't think they will be decking the halls. Maybe they will deck the flower bed as mulch.
