There is a larch tree in a corner of the garden that comes into its own for a few days once temperatures start to fall into the negative range. A bit ho-hum for the other 51 weeks of the year but a real stand oout at the moment.
A week ago these trees were heavy with gloriously golden leaves. Last night the temperature dropped to -2C and this morning all the leaves are on the ground. There was ice in puddles. Snow can’t be far away.
