frost on acer this morning

quite a frost this morning,checked the pond and found a froggy on the rocks which seems lifeless but unsure if they just shut their bodies down, so will keep checking, poor things, soo cold

Agree with Cristina they make a lovely combo :-))

Frosty here too but not such a hard one as you've had. Hope that little frog is OK, they do 'shut down' in winter, sometimes at the bottom of ponds in the mud or under stones, etc.

thanx cristina iv got a few pots to empty now after lastnights frost, gone all soggy and my banana plants look dead ;o( may cut them back and see if they recover x
thanx annella im defernatly going to have a grass border next year, love them ;o)
Gee the frog has moved under a rock so think he`s ok at the moment, just didnt look good, his colour seems strange, i need to make a froggy house for winter really ;o)

right carol very cold but a lovely sunny day ;o))
thanx carole will look at your blog to, luckerly my pond wasnt frozen and still have pump going, still undesided if to keep it running or not, some say yes and some say no lol ;o))

Not sure Sandra, as yours is much larger than mine it may not freeze up like mine has [dont have a pump].

hope the frog is ok..... havnt seen mine for ages...

It seems frosty mornings are going to be a regular occurrence now...we had quite a lot of frost on the rooftops this morning but I didn't notice any on my pots (they're in a sheltered spot too).

Glad the frog has recovered enough to take shelter...hope you find he stays ok...he'll likely be looking for somewhere to hide away in the cold.

thanx carol im going to keep it going a bit longer, with having fish and its not very deep im frightened it may freeze my fish, carol (clarice) says it will be ok as its the same depth as hers ;o)
holly i checked again before dark and the frog had gone again so thats a good sign he is ok ;o)
your right Wlass the frost and cold are here now which i dont mind if the sun is here to, better than rain and cloud, im going to try and make a froggy house at some point in the next few days and hope he goes in there at night ;o)

Acer looks smashing Sandra. Regarding your pump,well we take ours out anytime now,clean the pump and filter then store away until spring. Dont think it matters either way..

That sounds like fun, San. No idea how you make one so it will be interesting to see what you come up with. Keep us posted, San.

Lovely acer Sandra, the frost is really biting now. Poor froggy, I don`t know what happens to them in the cold weather, we don`t have a pond but quite a few frogs but haven`t seen them since before the holiday.
