Snow on the cold frames

The snow is building up on my auricula cold frames; it's time to remove some before it gets too heavy.

Åke & Gunnel

Here you can see Åke & Gunnel frozen in the cold frames, where they overwinter; it’s relatively mild just now with only minus 4°C.
The old leaves are removed when they have defrosted in the spring.
