Frosting

061214frostedpelargonium

Past ten o’clock and the frost is still thick. Luckily, I spent some time yesterday moving pots into the greenhouse and fleecing up. Yet look at this plant. It’s a pelargonium, ‘Concolor Lace’ and in theory tender. I had so many cuttings of it this year that I tried bedding some out and it worked brilliantly. Here it is still looking fresh, if icy, after a few degrees of frost. The Cerinthes are also still green and even flowering. Marvels of nature, eh?

  • Surprise!

    A snowy garden this morning. I wasn’t expecting that; my weather app didn’t predict it. The horses don't seem to mind it.
