Before the Frost


By eirlys


Thanks to the mild Winter and the early days of Spring we have had lots of colour in the garden. A frost warning the other week worried us and we were right to worry. Overnight the frost hit our shrubs hard and the colour has mostly vanished. The magnolias are no more and the azaleas also suffered. So much for the sunny South!

I like taking photos of the shrubs when they are in bloom so here are a few for you to see.!!!

Believe the vineyards in Kent suffered in spite of the heroic attempt to save them using hundreds of candles.

We are now looking forward to our rhododendrons blooming though we could do with some rain to help them along!

Frost threatened again sadly. Hope your garden will be all right.

See that the photos didn't materialise! No way of adding them now so I'll try another blog.
