Frosted Front Garden

We have rarely experience clear frosty days in recent years as climate change is showing its hand. So when one does come along it makes our garden look very special. In the second week of January we woke to an extremely cold morning and Jack Frost has decorated the front garden with whiteness. In the gravel garden, The Beth Chatto Garden, we have many tall grasses and perennials which we leave overwinter for wildlife and for days when frost or snow appear.

Here is a selection of photos I took that morning before the sun came around and melted the frost away.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

Yes, we woke up to this. Water droplets in the air heavily dusted the large trees beyond us
while the ground was only lightly touched.
