Garden Round-up

Hello all

Can you still see your garden or is it covered in snow?

We've only had frost here but the temperatures have dropped to -2°C overnight, usually the coldest time is between 4-5 am, Mr CK is monitoring the temperature just out of interest. He's sampling the temperature every minute and is about to produce an enormous graph.

Here's a frosty strawberry plant, how pretty it looks in it's winter coat.


Most plants have soldiered on but a few begonias have gone all squishy and the hydrangea leaves are dark brown and droopy.

The birds are enjoying the seeds and nuts dangling from the old crabapple tree.

Time for another hot cup of coffee.

Let's get the kettle on.

  1. Our lawn is green again after a snowy weekend and frost yesterday - it was so cold on our walk I was tempted by a hot chocolate at the cafe near the lake, just right for frosty weather. We always feed the birds but have been putting extra out for them recently:)

  2. We had a frost yesterday, my dahlias are now very brown. Our bird table is always kept well stocked, we invested in a mealworm feeder the other day to stop them being blown off in the wind x

  4. Oh so cold! It really caught me on the hop. I have not been at home in the daylight yet to survey the damage. The Strawberry plant looks so pretty though x
