It is windy today, VERY WINDY. It is also the coldest it has been since last winter. At 2 pm it is 4.7°C according to the forecast on my phone. Having just been for a short walk I’m sure that’s right, especially if the wind chill is factored in. The wind speed is between 33 and 44 km/hour; almost all the remaining leaves from the trees in the garden are now on the ground.
The sky is blue and the sun is shining so it is not so bad.
The top of the Cypress is bent over by the wind!
The reflective heat of the gravel keeps the Lamprathus flowering
Two varieties of yellow Hemerocallis, Rosa ‘Molineux and Iris ‘Pure as Gold’ and the yellow berries of Melia azedarach.
You might have noticed that I’ve moved the pots of Citrus from the semi-circle; they’re in a more protected area on the west facing terrace; if it becomes much colder they will have to go into the greenhouse which will make that very full.
