This morning we awoke to a very cold and frosty start to the day.
I arose at 6.30am, and proceeded outside to feed the chooks who were already squawking in the morning twilight. I had to crack the ice on their water bowl, so decided to give them some warm water from the tap.
Then I did a quick tour of the yard, and noticed that there was frost everywhere. This is very unusual for this area, and I have only experienced temperatures this cold about 4 years ago, and never in the 8 years before that.
The broad beans were all bent over on top and frozen,
The temperature was a lowly 0.5 degrees Celsius (32F) at 7.30am, which is when I took these photos. It got down to a low of 0.3 degrees overnight. Freaking freezing Mr Bigglesworth! Inside for a warming cup of coffee.
