I had booked the day off work to get a few jobs done in the garden, but i'm stuck indoors glaring at a slow snow thaw.
As a result the lawn is becoming a bog with all the melt water, i'm expecting rushes to start sprouting soon.
at least this crazy biting wind has dried the ground out a bit up here in newcastle.
Although it's still pretty windy here and the sun is shining the snow is melting very slowly. I've just spent an hour or so clearing the snow out of the pots because everything was getting flattened under the weight. In all honesty it was quite pleasant and really quite warm. I'm amazed how quickly the flattened mini daffs, crocus etc have perked up now that they have the sun shining on them.
No snow here in Hampshire but it is bitterly cold. SInce there's not a lot I can do in the garden itself I've been cleaning/tidying/painting the inside of my shed. Out of the direct wind but I still keep getting freezing and have to come in for a cup of tea to warm me up!
I would give anything at the moment to go for a walk in the snow, we had just a bit in Jan, then none at all.
Lyn, are you a sadist? The weather in the North of England is shockingly, depressingly freezing...
No! I love the snow, deeper the better, coats, hats scarf, mits, love it!
