It has been very frosty here in the Algarve. Since we have been here we have not experienced such a prolonged frost night after night. Some plants have found it very hard and we shall see if they come back in the Spring.... The Sun coming up takes its time to thaw the earth and give the Light of Hope as we step forward with good intentions for the year. Tis the first New Moon of 2021 this morning 💛
Frosty Verbascum leaf. This mighty plant can cope with the freeze!
