28/04/2017 A few photos from the garden.
Maximum temperature 14C, minimum -1C. 13 kmh N wind. Overcast with some sun. Dry.
The garden is not happy after the cold spell. The grapes are decidedly the worse for wear, also the potatoes that were just coming through, luckily we planted the latter late so they will recover. Even the new shoots on the laurel hedge are badly burnt.
Not good for the vineyards and the coming wine making season!!
Small copper (Lycaena phlaeas).
Hover fly (I think.)
Peony plus ant.
First picking of broad beans, thankfully they do not mind the cold!
