Some Photos from This Morning
None of the plants are happy about this ridiculous weather (nor is the gardener.....), but I have been amusing myself all day with the "frozen broccoli" we're growing. No need for blanching and freezing once it's picked!
This photo (above) is a shot of the waterall near the large koi pond. It reminds me of the ocean at home in winter.
I think these lilies are just too cold to realize they're frozen! Let's see what happens when the temperatures rise again!
Below, the Fatsia japonica is such an elegant plant, even in this weather. When the crazy cold hits, it almost appears to be bowing to Mother Nature. Fortunately it stands right back up after a few hours of warm sunlight.
