It’s another Monday, and time to begin another week. In the garden, the temperature has moved wildly. This morning it’s a very mild 8 celsius here in Abbeyside at 8am, and likely to hit 10C later. As against that, it dipped to minus 2 overnight on Friday.
These low temperatures are tough for plants. Most are able for the drop, and some actually revel in such conditions. I was out with the camera on Saturday to catch the cold.
|Phlox subulata ‘McDaniel’s Cushion’|
Osteospermum jucundum ‘Blackthorn Seedling’
Note: O. jucundum is a perennial with aromatic grey-green leaves and daisy-like, white flowers, flushed purple with darker purple eyes in summer and autumn. I’m putting it on my list of favourite plants. Further info here (on my virtual welly footprint)
