Snow!

Category: Garden Highlights | Posted: Sat Feb 11, 2012 2:41 pm

The hints of spring I mentioned in my previous post may have been a bit premature...

We've had a couple of inches of snow, and the temperature last night was reported to be -10, the coldest so far this year. Holbeach, which is not that far away, reported -15!

The bay tree seems to be fine, though.

But the winter pansies look a bit forlorn, at least the parts that I can see!

On the other hand, the dead stalks of the fennel have acquired little snowy hats, and look quite attractive!

The good new is that the weather forecast is for warmer weather, up to 8 degrees. Personally, I'll be happier when we get into double figures!
