Cold Monday Morning

The forecast was correct and Monday morning started off on the cold side with the early morning temperature falling to 2.2°C or 36.0°F.
That's  our coldest October temperature for 5 years. On 30 October 2012 it fell to 1.8°C (35.2°F) but the coldest October temperature I've recorded was on 25 October 2010 with 0.2°C or 32.4°F.

On Sunday afternoon we visited the plot and I made a start on clearing one of the beds which over a number of years has been neglected and is in desperate need of refurbishment.
The first job was to cut down this elder tree which was getting rather large. Once the tree was felled I seemed to have large elder branches everywhere.
It's going to be one of those jobs where things appear to get an awful lot worse before they get any better. The good news was I managed to get the tree cut down without damaging the greenhouse on our neighbour's plot.
