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?

I was amazed at how cold and frosty it was in Manchester when we arrived back. The hail they had didn't melt and looked like snow!¬
I expected the same weather today and dressed accordingly. But no!
