Thankfully the snow on Sunday only lasted a day but it’s been very cold since with hard overnight frosts. On Tuesday morning I found that the allotment site gate lock was frozen so walked round to the other end to see if that gate lock was okay, which thankfully it was.
The plots were all frozen and icy but there’s certainly something a bit magical about frosty plants. Here are daffodil leaves (top left), common fennel old stems and new growth (top right), crocuses (bottom left) and a strawberry plant (bottom right).
It looks like getting noticeably warmer from tomorrow onwards but remaining mostly dull, and wet and windy at times.
Have a good weekend!
