There’s been a couple…

of frosty mornings this week so  yesterday I wasn’t surprised to find the flowers, like these drooping cosmos, looking rather sad and the ground white.


Today it’s damp and dull following overnight rain but thankfully the weekend and into next week is looking better with higher temperatures and remaining dry.


Karen, whose garden is on her seventeenth floor flat balcony, kindly sent me this lovely handmade birthday card.  I especially like the ladybirds and sparkling water droplets.


Have a good weekend!

    It’s been the same here weather wise and it’s drizzly this morning. What a lovely card, very fitting.

    Frosted flowers here as well. What a lovely card, and I love the idea of a 17th storey balcony garden, I bet the view’s amazing. CJ xx

    What a delightful card! I’m sure it brightened your day and many afterwards!
    We’ve been close to freezing here, but not yet a killing frost.

    Winter arrived at your end. It is likely to be short-lived, however, the temperatures will change from frost to more usual temperatures at this point in your year.

    We saw snow and ice last weekend with the Arctic weather visitation. We remain now, in single figure temperatures.

  6. What a lovely card! Enjoy your weekend too Mike x

    Very cute! That’s determination — having a garden on a balcony.

    That is a lovely card. It’s always a little sad when the annuals are killed off by the first frost, same happened here
