It,s Brass Monkey Weather

The clocks have gone back a hour and we have had a few really hard frosts. the marigolds went from this
to this overnight
I hadn,t got around to insulating the greenhouse and it needed doing fast as I like to overwinter the pelargonium (zonal Geranium)and had just bought eight more at the B+Q sale for 50p each! couldn,t face doing the full job so put some shelving in there and made a bubble wrap "tent" around it
every evening I close it up with a curtain,pegging it together with clothspegs! so far it has stopped it going below freezing.I,m hoping it will save on energy bills
I have managed to get the overwintering onions in,last years were a disaster as most of them were ate by creatures unknown,this year I have covered them with very fine net. I,m hoping they will be safe and warm in there
this is the only harvest this week although the sprouts are coming on
Managed to get a pic of this frog just before the temperatures fell I do hope he is all right
we did see 2 hedgehogsone very small the other wet night I fear for them. also we have seen a very healthy fox around our housing estate. I put out uneaten cat food and leftover scraps so think perhaps he might be calling in my front garden on his travels
