Winter Is Here
We have been 'frosted' in for the last three days. Indeed, the frost is so heavy that it does look like snow in places. The temperature has not risen high enough for long enough to clear it during the day, and has dropped as low as -5C at night.
The river is now visible from our house up to the bend in the road past Margaret's, at what we call the view point.
The wind was so strong last week that quite a few trees are down, so our washing line didn't really stand a chance...
There is still some colour in the garden. It had been so mild up until last week that I still had the odd rose flowering, and even quite a few flowers on the osteospermum. The cyclamens that I planted in the autumn are now in full flower...
and the mahonias, and several shrubs are bright with berries...
