Well the marigolds seems to have had enough of the cold.
And who can blame them.
I forgot to wrap up the bay tree in its protective layer of bubble wrap, till late last night. I don’t think I’ll have done it any favours, it hasn’t really got over last winters ‘big freeze’.
We had no more that a scattering of snow, as can be seen on the roof slates.
We are pleased to show you snow on our slates, as it means heat is not leaching out house at the same rate of knots as it did before we had the roof redone and had some decent insulation put in during the summer*. Last winter this snow would have melted, the slates warmed at our expense.
* I never have written a post about the experience, one day.
