Frost and sunshine

Two nights of below zero temps and frost followed by two days of glorious sunshine. 



Pretty weeds unaffected by frost



Rhubarb devastated

but looking pretty nevertheless


A little later, in the sun, the scent from these violets was amazingly strong.



The brassicas drooped amazingly then recovered their upright status as the frost defrosted and the sun shone. Harvesting the potatoes was very warm work despite the temp being only 8C - undoubtedly the sunshine added lots of imaginary heat.
