Frost

It has been a cold night and as soon as it was light... that is getting later now (after 6), I went outside to see how the garden had fared.  It was the potato plants that I was worried about.  One of them looked very fragile....
 .... this is the worst of it, and after the sun came up, and the leaves melted,  they didn't look very well at all.....
 Most of the potatoes are ok though....
 .... and the brassicas are loving it.
 Hopefully that will be the end of the caterpillars and their mothy parents.

Wandering around near the fishpond brought them all to the surface begging for food.....
....  notice the one with the dark back on the lower right hand side.   There are all ten fish in this picture and one has a dark back,   one has a white "nose" and the others are all ordinary.   The reflection shows the trees around the pool,  and a clear blue sky beyond.  We are going to have a bright shiny day.
