The garden has been frozen for days. Surely the temperatures will rise a little to allow a thaw.
At this moment Spring seems a lifetime away.
The house is cold. The log store is half empty. Keeping an open fire going during these cold days is necessary.
I wonder which plants will survive these prolonged temperatures.
It is the tropical garden I am most concerned about.
For now, it is time to sit in front of the fire with a good book and a nice cup of tea.
