Down to 0.6C here and car frozen over. Still no protection for the Dicksonia antarctica's, long may it continue.

Another widespread frost tonight.

Here the first air frost (both tonight and tomorrow) is very likely, but it shouldn't be too cold. (-1C @ worst)

low of 2*c forcast, but the clearest sky you ever did see, every constellation vivid as the moon :shock: Car is already forming a layer of condensation so frost likely. Nothing to wrap though icon_cheers

So far holding up, unexpectedly strong breeze, especially considering southeasterly is usually not a great direction for here.

Tonight shouldn't be as cold as last night, but here I'm pleasantly surprised, I'm not getting as cold as I would usually expect. It's currently 5.2C so not dropping away to fast. Same from last night too. Could still be a frost of course, but this may take some time. It does feel fairly mild with high humidity.

Well turned out to stop at 2*c on the low, and no frost, and today has been lovely in the sun icon_scratch

I came back from Costa Rica today and was pleased there had been no frost over the 12 days I'd been away.

Plants looking good, brug stems still perky if bare, Lapageria growing, Abutilon flowering icon_thumleft
