The Teddington Gardener

A Touch of Frost

IMG_4899IMG_4914A touch on the chill side this morning, with pretty much everything rimed with frost until the sun was able to warm things up just a little, though I think a repeat is due tomorrow morning.

IMG_4933IMG_4927These hellebores were unfazed by the deep freeze though not everything will be as forgiving, so a roll of horticultural fleece would be useful for anything a touch tender in your garden.

IMG_4943IMG_4945Opiophogon nigrescens, so-called Black Grass (though I think it is part of the lily family) looking particularly fine with the frosty coating. Bay, Wallflowers and Camellia in the gallery there too.

I think I can take off one or two of my thermal layers now, maybe a fleece and my gloves….
