Epeigné-les-Bois: cold but bright

Frozen ball on a bramble

Overnight from Christmas to Boxing Day the temperature fell to -7C producing plenty of givré (hoar frost) but there was brilliant bright sunshine during the day with little wind. Another good cold spell to help kill off bugs etc. in the vineyard. The cold is due to continue through part of today before getting milder with rain forecast for tomorrow.

Hoar frost
