First frost

Woke up this morning to the first frost of the year.  And it was quite a heavy one.

All my fledgling veggies seem to have survived but the broad beans were drooping a bit

They should pick up later though because the sun is out and melting the frost quite rapidly.  My acer is a beautiful colour in the sunlight

and the last of the Gaillardia flowers are putting up a fight

Acer

I picked up a pretty little variegated acer in Morrisons yesterday. It was £3. I’ve been quite impressed with Morrisons for plants so far this year.
