Yesterday was cooler but pleasant here, about 16C with sun. Now that the patch beneath and behind the compost bins is clear, we went to look for plants.

We chose a nursery a 20 minute drive away. As we approached, it was surrounded by mist and the thermometer on the car showed a drop in temperature down to just 7C! Fool that I was, amongst many others there, was just in a summer top and we were all frozen. The staff were all wearing jackets!

Only two plants bought plus a bag of compost to boost the depth of soil. I shall have to dig up and move some plants from elsewhere to fill it up a bit more.


  1. That was cold! More a winter temperature than a summer one. Brrrrrrr.

  2. Amazing how the weather can change over a short distance.

  3. Yes foggy hear too and so cold. Disappointing end to bank hols! Our favourite garden centre is very exposed and we have frozen there in mid summer!
