I was relieved to get off the road last night. While the road conditions were good, I did hit a terrible shower of sleet on the M50 and feared it would be like that for the rest of the journey home. Thankfully, it was just one shower.
I have the glasshouse covered in three layers of horticultural fleece since Friday night. Apart from making sure that the fleece is still in place, I have left it alone i.e. didn't even open it up slightly. I have my new rose covered with fleece also. I hope that doesn't die on me - getting such a cold blast just after planting. I don't know which is worse - the actual frost or that very cold wind which would skin a cat?
All the Christmas presents are bought so I am going downstairs now to wrap them and perhaps have a drink or two while wrapping. They could end up wrapped any way!
