Our first taste of winter

With the start of the winter soccer season our weekends have been taken up with soccer - 4 games on Saturday and 2 out of town games on Sunday.

Just as soccer has started so too has the cold weather - including our first good frosts....

And even got our first dusting of snow.....

One thing that is apparent with our first cold snap is that the plants we have along our northern brick wall are showing no signs of frosting .... the photo below was taken on the same day as the one of the nasturtiums and brussel sprouts were covered in ice in the photos above. I am keen to monitor this micro-habitat into the full depth of winter.
