The sun came out this afternoon. We are going to have a frost tonight. Decided to walk the garden to see what might be vulnerable, not that I can do much to stop it. Nature has the upperhand. There is virgin leaf on the Hawthorn. The crab and ornamental apple are in bud. The dicentra that I have netted (because the rabbits love them) has done really well. You are definately not having this one bunny!!! Finally the Berberis Darwinii is in full flower and looking very pretty. I wonder what will happen overnight??? Enlarge the ornamental apple photograph and you will see two insects sitting on top of the buds.
