Morning pictures

Well this morning when I woke up it looked like a lovely day, albeit a bit chilly outside, there was frost on the lawn, I think I now know why this section of the lawn is looking a bit sad, it is the area which gets the brunt of any frost that we get, so until we get out of the frost risk time it wont be getting mowed. When look closely I can see that it isn't dead, there are new shoots underneath but their is a layer of dead stuff on top, a mow would probably tidy it up nicely, but then leave all the green shoots vulnerable in the next bout of frost.

The citrus trees are still surviving even with having some of their leaves blown off in recent very windy storms. I am yet to find out what the problem with the orange tree is, it has rusty coloured areas on the underside of some of the leaves. I am thinking it is from winds or cold because it is all from the same direction

This photo I took because the sun glistening on the morning dew on the leaves just looked wonderful, but as good as my camera is I don't think it quite captured the moment

And here's evidence of my recent weeding activities
