Brumbull, what is MPC?
It is raining here in the Fens, and set to rain for about the next 24 hours and then more over the next few days. It means I am forced to do boring paperwork instead of gardening.
Multi Purpose Compost = MPC saves typing the full word
Wet and windy on the edge of the marlborough downs got in the garden for 3 hours today so not all doom and gloom.
I'm with you.
Happy St Paddy's day to all .
artjac,my apologies for not acknowledging the answer to my question about the Fens.
Just woken to snow showers typical paddy's day weather
Weather not that bad, slight drizzle on and off ............... but ive been able to do a bit, all compost is now stored away in dry log cabin - clematis trimmed / cut back, standard azaleas repotted and re canned, time for a glass of wine before sunday lunch me thinks
Alternating between heavy rain & sleet here, another week gone and spring isn't showing her face yet. Bah humbug, back to hibernation for another month methinks.
MM Paws, I agree, bah humbug says it all
The Fens; raining.
Official first day of Spring on Wednesday-the forecast is full of winter with frost snow and high winds
Just to add to my misery, now I've caught something nasty from the biggest little one. Hope to goodness it's not chicken pox, it's doing the rounds at school. Still horribly grotty up here, wall-to-wall cloud, drizzly and very, very cold (although that could just be my grottiness). Not looking forward to it going dark, think the drizzle will turn to snow. We were forecast snow yesterday (well, early this morning), but it didn't materialise. Think it will tonight though, with how cold it is.
Chicken stew tonight, with herby dumplings, that's if I can haul my carcass off the sofa and stay upright long enough to do it!
Oooooh MMP weather in Rotherham NOT good then !
