That’s the view of the back garden this morning. Stems and structures standing proud, a few evergreens … and I notice that the Buddleja globosa by the fence on the right still has quite a lot of leaves on. Looking back, that seems typical although it is nothing compared to the profusion of leaves that will be covering it in 3-4 months.
You will also notice a dusting of snow. That was unexpected but it is already disappearing and has remained much warmer than the -60°C conditions I was writing about yesterday!
