Frost this morning...

Clematis on the butterfly trellis by the Circle Lawn
I am encouraged this morning by remembering that this frosty beauty is part of the process of  
               creating art in the garden.
                                                All must fall for spring to rise.

There are reports that Sissinghurst Castle is likely to have its frost any day now too. There is also comfort in commonality. All gardens, big and small, ancient and new, will face this fate: to live through the harshest part of their year in order to enjoy the season to come.

  5. Hi Julie! Temperatures here have jumped up again, with the weather chaps reporting double the seasonal average for this time of year. The seasons all seem to be messed up, strange days. Nevertheless we’re making the most of it!
