For the first three months of this year our poor plants outside were so confused. The earth would warm up to the point you’d believe Spring had arrived early then boom, either the snow would fall or the ground would turn white with frost.
In the photo above it was the latter. Our one and only pot plant outside, a mixture of ferns and moss, (what can I say – it came with the house and has yet to be dealt with…) was peppered with frost, making it shine in the morning light.
There was a definite twinkle in the grass yesterday morning as I headed off on the early morning school run. The ground appeared to glow as the sun’s rays washed over the earth.
At the risk of jinxing myself and upsetting MANY people, I really do think winter is getting closer but… “mum, how much longer?”
