At last the begonias have decided that it's about time they came in for the winter!  Well, most of them have -  first frost struck last night and now most of them are looking a bit dreepit.

I've started bringing them in, and as per usual, I'm sticking them in a bath of hot water for a couple of minutes in order to cook the vine weevils.  It's a bit cruel, I know, and I do my best to evict all innocent parties like worms and centipedes before the soaking begins.  It seems to work, because I've had one dead weevil grub floating in the water already.

Since I have so many begonias kicking around now, there's no way I'm going to get them all sorted tonight. So I hope they'll be able to hang in there until tomorrow, because the temperatures are supposed to dip below zero tonight until mild air moves back in from the Atlantic tomorrow.

Will post some more photos from Lagrasse tomorrow!  Enjoy your weekend everyone - don't know about you lot, but I really need this chance to sit back and put my feet up!!
