After the frost

wp_20161125_001We’ve had beautiful frost this week.

Bella has enjoyed playing in this winter wonderland

wp_20161125_004Today, it has all gone and I’ve been clearing up the debris left behind.  The frost has finished off the nasturtiums and the fuchsia and nearly finished the sweet peas.  It has revealed a landscape of dead leaves, weeds and overgrown grass .  I tried to clear some stuff out of the pond but discovered there was still a layer of ice below the surface  But the broccoli and Swiss chard is still in fine form, despite the deep freezing and I know there a lots of little bulbs below the surface just waiting patiently for the spring.
