I don’t know what winter you have, but ours came immediately and in one day. Last week, a strong wind suddenly blew and drove snow clouds on us. The blizzard was named Benedict. A strange name, isn't it? The whole city was covered with a thick layer of snow. This disaster lasted two days. The next morning, it stopped, and thousands of cleaning vehicles began to collect snow and take it out of city. I went to my cottage to see and that's what I saw there.
Last week I finally took the time to cover the roses with a special cloth. Now I'm glad they won't freeze. On the left is a floribunda rose under cover and under the snow. Howbeit, plants are better under the snow, because the forecast for the week is -10 C
A greenhouse (left photo) with a polycarbonate coating has proven itself well in past frosty winters. Raindrops are now frozen on its walls. But the inside is a little warmer than the outside. Young seedlings in pots overwinter in the greenhouse. Hopefully they will survive the winter.
Father Frost did his job: the drops froze on the railing of the terrace and did not fall to the ground. A long icicle has formed next to the apple tree. I liked the shape - with a hole at the end. He also painted beautiful pictures on the barn windows.
