This week’s weather has been a repeat of last week’s. Strong winds at the beginning of the week with a beautiful, warm, sunny day on Wednesday (perfect for gardening and, well, just being outside); with the clear skies a heavy frost descended during the night so that again I woke to an almost white world.
The combination of cold and wind means that now, when I look out of my kitchen window I can see a lot more sky and the stems of the Wisteria are silhouetted against a blue sky.
I’m not sure how the plants are coping with these extremes in temperature. In the greenhouse the high, with the door and windows wide open reached 32.1°C and the low fell to just 0.5°C.
On the slope starry, white, ice crystals decorated the foliage making it appear that all the plants were variegated varieties!
A lone half-eaten Persimmon remains on the now leafless tree.
