Lovely day - with thermals!


Well, it was a beautiful sunny morning, but a hard frost overnight. Glad I’d saved (nearly) all my tender plants! I went out with my camera to see what I could capture.

I didn’t want to walk on the grass but just keeping to the path I found these Sedums shining in the sun.

And next to them a Calceolaria

These Erigerons look as if they are variegated with the rim of frost on them!

The Antirrhinums have survived, they are tougher than you’d think. I like them frosted – but not all the time.

I checked the greenhouse later and all is well. More frost forecast for tonight, though! Looks like Winter is upon us…on with my thermals.

Heavy frost here in east Berkshinre last night too (and again tonight by the feel of it). Lifted the last of my tender plants yesteday to pot up and bring indoors. Also put a dry mulch over the roots of anything a bit borderline which seems to help

yes me too, i have also been out taking pic's and sweeping the grass of the last of the leaves that have fallen, i have plenty of bare soil as the garden is new, so i have put the leaves i collected all over the bear bits where i have planted bulbs. managed to get the last few tulip and daff bulbs in as well. well it certainly looks as if winter is well on its way, but does'nt it look stunning with the ice coating in the mornings!
