|at least the broad beans were not affected|
Philippe presented a very dejected figure this morning. The second overnight frost has decimated the young, tender shoots of his grapevines and also hit his potato crop badly. He is very unhappy.

We are being well and truly punished for our early warm weather and the gardens here have taken a big hit. Paul wrapped up his tomatoes and courgettes in fleece but it still looks like he’s lost one tomato plant and the leaves on the courgettes are not looking good.
My beautiful hydrangea that had just put up small flower heads has been burnt by the frost. The cherries have been hit too, such a shame as it looked like it was going to be a bumper year. Our potato plants are not looking good either.

The local wine and fruit producers will be badly affected. Mother nature can be very cruel sometimes.
|Diane Dawg looked dejected too|
