When I returned home after our time in England I was surprised to discover just how hardy all the Anemone coronaria are; there had been sub zero temperatures almost every night were away (which has continued all the past week too with an incredible minus 8°C forecast for Saturday). I took these images a week ago 28th December 2016 but didn’t feel up to writing a post, but I thought it would be nice to use them today.
We hear just before Christmas that the field you can see behind the Miscanthus has been sold and it is likely that it will be let to the same ‘farmers’ who have rented all the other fields around us and manage them in a horribly industrial way, I mention this as it means I will probably plant another tree or maybe Bay behind the Miscanthus to hide the view of yet more Broccoli! It is sad as I like the view of the olives beyond.
Apart from yesterday when there was rain during the night and early morning the days have been wonderfully bright and sunny with lovely blue skies and spectacular sunsets; such a difference to our time in England when I think I only saw the sky on Christmas morning with heavy fog being the norm for most days.
Is the sun shining where you are?
