We have had more exceptionally warm weather for the time of year – but it is coming to an end. It is already a lot cooler this morning with a sharpish northerly breeze. There is frost forecast for tonight and again tomorrow night. I have fuschias and pelargonums in containers, over-wintered in the greenhouse, that I put out on the front drive last weekend. They may have to come back inside for a day or too. And I’ll have to find some fleece to protect the beans. Meanwhile I have held back from planting out the dahlias because we had several days warning of this coming change in weather and, once out, they cannot be returned!
There is fabulous new growth on the mahonia:
