WHITE

Overnight it was - 3.5C and clear so there was a lot of frost this morning, the most since I arrived. I went out to take these photos at about 9am, when it had warmed up to - 2. Crisp is a word I have often used about chilly, fresh morning air but never has crisp felt like this to me before! It is beautiful.... not as beautiful as snow but still a lovely thing to see what patterns nature has been designing during the night....

Interesting to see how some plants, such as broad beans and garlic can cope with being frozen but others would die at these temperatures.

There are more photos here...
Meanwhile in Oxford,UK, son Alex and friends spent the day building Oxford's first igloo!!
