It was a little bit freezing today in the morning. Temperature dropped to -5 C (23 F). Happily the sky was clear and the sun which appeared around 7.30 AM brought fantastic weather. Truly speaking Poland is still devided into two parts. Cloudy western part of the country is a little bit warmer with +6 C (42,8 F) when sunny east suburbs are still quite cold with around -3 C (26,6 F). It's +2 C (35,6 F) at the moment in the area where I live so we are somewhere between two masses of air of different temperature and weater conditions. And it's partly cloudy here with some sun breaks.
There are still some signs of snow in my garden. Quite heavy snow falls came here with Xaver witch blassed Europe last Thursday and Friday. Luckily the storm did not make any damages in my garden.
It is quite difficult to grow evergreen broadleaf plants in Poland. I wrote about it some time ago. But my experience and knowledge tells me that it is possible. And you can find the proof for that in my garden. You cas see some ivies here or spindles (Euonymus).
I also grow many different rhododendrons. I love them, especially in may whe they bloom. You can find here some different kinds of hollies, skimmias, pierises, cherry laurels (common laures), berberises and many others.
I will soon start some kind of presentation of evergreen broadleaf plants that grow in my garden. I will tell you how to take care of them and how frost hardy they are.
Now, let's enjoy beautiful morning weater.
