Frost - is it spring or fall?

Since Monday we have had a hard frost each morning.  The lows were:

April 9-12:
       Monday - 33.2
       Tuesday - 24.8
       Wednesday - 22.2
       Thursday - 23.7

Not exactly what we would like to see just after greens aerification.  The predicted rains and higher night temps over the weekend will help the recover process.  The frosts have been hard on the trees, shrubs and perennials that started to grow.  How much damage will be done, is hard to know at this time. Click pictures to enlarge.  All were taken today (Thur AM - April 12).
