Inclement weather

 Alliums with frost damage, not helped by being so dry too. The geranium phaem are doing well though - and the bumblebees love the flowers.

This Spring has been good for gardening groups - we haven't cancelled many for rain - because it has been so very, very dry. And then we suffered a hard frost. Thankfully, we had warning and covered our salad bed with fleece cloches for a few days. Lots of plants in the main beds had frost damage though and or donated fig tree lost all its buds - we hope it will make some more soon.

We are lucky we aren't growing crops commercially, and have a mains water supply now but it is sad to see the plants struggle.
