Who cares about frost?
This morning has begun with lots and lots of sun. Despite temperatures dropped to -4°C last night, the daffodils do not care. Like little rays of light, the Tete-a-Tetes proudly present themselves, bright yellow between all the brown and dead leaves.
The grass and the moss, covered in frost, will soon be green and enjoy the sun. The last many days of rain, has given the lawn a good opportunity for a great start into spring.
I have many plans for the garden this year. Our middle boy will have his confirmation on May 30th, and I wan´t everything to look absolutely stunning. Two years ago, when our eldest son had his confirmation, the waether was perfect. We went to a restaurant to have the dinner and later we continued celebrating with all the guests back home in the garden.
The idea is to have the same setup for the big day. If my flowers are not ready to bloom, I´ll just buy some in bloom to put between the others. It looked great the last time and it will also this year. First, let´s wait and see how the weather turns out the week up to the big day.
Sadly, I found this little fellow on the tiles this morning outside the orangery. No signs, that it had flown into the glass anywhere, so it might have been attacked by another bird – or maybe it was just sick or old. Looked like an old bird to me.
The roses were covered in frost, which gave them a very fine white edging. When the sun hits the leaves, the frost melts within seconds. Quite interesting to look at. Its there, and suddenly it´s all vanished before your eyes.
