Acessing winter damage

My English Ivy doesn't look too well, all brown. I've only ever seen it this bad once, and that was also after an icy winter. Boxwood hedges have lots of winter burn on tops and sides, sickly white color, not brown as in winter kill thank goodness. Hopefully after I trim that all off in a few weeks there will be green growth under there.

Some tulips missing. I know it's early but still concerned. I know for sure the bulbs in the bed in the little sunken garden are probably toast because the cats have been using the bed as their outdoor litter box and dug them all out.

The perennial blue meadow sage I planted in the crescent bed didn't fair well either. The plants were heaved by frost. I think they are all goners - back to annuals in there.

All this and expecting my first garden tour in June. :(
