Just when I thought it was safe…

…the weather reverted to winter conditions. From being a balmy 17 degrees c last week, it struggled to get warmer than 7 today. Frost last night with overnight temp of -1c and wintry storms today. And its nearly May!! When I realised at the weekend that the temperature was falling, all of the repotted trees and anything with tender shoots and buds went back into the glasshouse. I’ll have to play it by ear though as the sun is still strong through the glass.

I have a mature pieris japonica in the garden which was at the peak of it beautiful fluorescent pink flowering. Ruined overnight unfortunately.
