Living by the sea in Auckland we don’t get many frosts but this morning had a beauty. Very delicate crystals on the car roof and the birdbath frozen over.
I was struck though by how useful a frost can be for planning your garden layout. After I’d walked to the compost bin and back I noticed the path I’d left in the grass. How useful to see where people walk if you want to put in a path. Get the family to walk around your new garden and see where the footprints congregate – democratic landscaping.
