      Just got back from an eye test and while eating lunch checked the weather forecast.
      -4 tonight :-(
      Better get the boiler apart and see what's wrong with it before that arrives.
      Gardening on hold for today.

        Frost wasn't too heavy last night, so I haven't lost any fruit blossoms.
        Tonight is meant to go down to -3, though...

            We had ice pellets and snow after a sunny start.
            The wind was in a non winging direction so I started clearing up for a hen run extension.

                Outside was minus -5c at 7am this morning. The greenhouse was -1c. Cold!
                Nestled somewhere in the Cambridgeshire Fens. Good soil, strong winds!

                  Ta Dah.
                  Boiler working again (fan bearing needed lubricating)
                  Back in the garden again, well greenhouse anyway, bit too cold outside.
                  Just cleaning and tidying up ready for the tomatoes.

                    Glad your boiler's fixed Topcat. Thermometer says otherwise but it feels colder out there today than yesterday.

                      Looks like everything at home managed to survive the frost.
                      Everything I had on the patio is fine (including the pepper plant in the mini-greenhouse, surprisingly).
                      The plum trees in the garden have lost around half of their blossoms to the frost, which isn't actually that many considering how many thousands of flowers they have. I imagine I shall still have to thin them heavily later on.
                      The protected apricot seems as though the fruitlets have survived, although they are so small it's a little hard to tell for sure (they're still green, at least, rather than brown or black, so I think they're fine).
                      The unprotected apricot it's harder to tell, but I think at least some of the fruitlets seem okay (they still had the dried remains of the petals and sepals wrapped around them, so maybe that acted like a little blanket to keep them warm?).

                      I have yet to check the allotment. I have another plum there are two akebia vines I am concerned about.

                        The allotment plum was pretty hard hit, despite being covered. I've lost 90% or more of the open flowers. It does still have 20 or more unopened buds, though, which seem to still be okay.
                        The two akebia were a little damaged here and there, but are mostly fine.

                            Such a shame Nicos. Was on the lotty first thing today, it's cold out there again, 4C but feels much colder.

                                Wind has stopped, clouds have accumulated. Too much to hope for rain, but I've got my fingers crossed even so.

                                Sorry to hear about everyone's blossom. We've lost nearly all of our blossom on all our trees this year. The walnut was just putting out new leaves the other day, but this cold spell might have done for them too.
                                Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.
