Anyone else currently sitting in the dark like me as part of the national grid’s energy saving scheme? I know you don’t need to turn your lights off, but every little helps 😂 📖 🔦 . In other news, it was the coldest night I’ve ever recorded on my polytunnel thermometer, -6.2C. Probably nothing compared to further north, but that’s a record for me. The frost made the evergreen grasses look quite pretty though #luzula #luzulasylvatica #luzula-sylvatica #luzulasylvaticaaurea

It’s colder where you live than it is where I live in Sweden. ❄️

Your grasses do look beautiful with the sprinkling of frost. I must admit Richard, no I am definitely not sitting in the dark 😂💡

When you get older the blood thins (I’m sticking to that fact even if it’s wrong…) I thank you for doing your bit to keep us oldies warm! Currently it’s teetering on the edge of -3 🥶. It will be so lovely to wear just a couple or three layers of clothes!! Loving Luzula’s white whiskers 🤍💚🤍

Oh goodness @ulrikagustafsson , that is very surprising 😲 It’s finally starting to get a bit milder, particularly from Saturday.

Lol! Two nights in a row I sat in the dark 😆, although I forgot I had a portable camping lamp I could have used! @KOutdoors

Oh no Jean 😱 hope you didn’t have to stay like that for long. Glad you are prepared for a future occurrence. I’ve bought a windup radio now too for emergencies @Jean12345

Not sure why I’ve never posted this but next to the snowdrop bed is this clump of golden wood rush, it seems to show up well this time of year when everything else is dead or brown! Shade loving too #luzula #luzulasylvatica #luzula-sylvatica #luzulasylvaticaaurea #greatwoodrush
