The weather continues to be very enjoyable. From Monday there haven’t been any frosts and the days have been warm and sunny. Strangely there are still leaves on the Wisteria, less on the part of the pergola in front of the kitchen but still masses in front of the sitting room. The sun is low in the sky and pours into the kitchen sometimes making it hard to see the computer screen; but I find it even harder the close the inner shutter to keep the sun out!
This morning it was very hard to take photographs of the slope because the sun was so bright so some of the angles might be slightly different to usual, I do try to be consistent so it is easy to compare the different weeks.
I mentioned last week that the lower part of the slope actually forms a frost pocket, this is obvious when you look at the Pennisetum villosum which is now totally dead above ground, even though its flowers are still beautiful. In other parts of the garden the Pennisetum are still alive as shown in my Wordless Wednesday post yesterday. Other than this nothing much has changed on the slope except of course the Eschscholzia are growing bigger each day!
Has cold weather affected your garden, is there a plant that survives in one place but dies back in another?
