Temperatures here have fallen and we are getting a taste of winter. There has been a heavy frost the last couple of nights and the car thermometer read -6.5ºC when I took my husband to the station at 6:30 this morning.
It was cold scraping the ice off the car but once the sun came out I could appreciate how pretty everything looked.
Even the puddles look attractive with a layer of ice
and in the ditches at the side of the road the ice formed around dried stems
making unusual patterns.
The sun is shining now and the frost is melting away.
Its the end of the road for this geranium which has been flowering since last summer. I have some cuttings on a windowsill indoors so there will be another generation for next summer.
