Hooray, just in from a brief walk round the garden, during a brief lull in the rain, and I found an aconite flowering. It gave me a real buzz. To me snowdrops and aconites are the real harbingers of Spring, although I dont have any flowers on the snowdrops yet.
I used to have real problems establishing my aconites, but a few years ago a few clumps just took off, and now I get a great show every year.
My pond is flooding again Nut, but I have had the first Mallards prospecting for suitable nest sites.
Nut, do you or anyone else on here grow Viburnun nudum, as I am looking to increase my berrying shrubs.
Ok ok driving not diving ( ironic as sat watching ice gold diving in Alaska!!!!) my snowdrops are fab fab fab this year I bought 75 in the green of ebay last year and I think every one has come up but I bought 25 doubles and haven't seen one yet!!!!
My snowdrops haven't appeared yet, I do hope they haven't drowned.
I've never met Viburnum nudum Punkdoc. I googled it and acid or neutral soil is mentioned. I'm very alkaline . Looks nice though if you have the right conditions
Lily some of my snowdrops are still hiding.
Lol I think a lot of my perennials have drowned my poor chickens need wellies I have to keep putting Vaseline on their feet to prevent any rot which they are less than impressed at ..... daft u can get glasses for chickens but not wellies lol
It suddenly went very black 10 mins ago, thunder & lightening, and then a covering of snow
All washed away now, but what is going on?
Lol Stacey, chickens in glasses, cool dudes

just arrived here kef
Where've you all gone - buried under a snowdrift?????
We had a fall of snow here too. No idea how heavy or for how long as didn't notice when in work, however one of my friends put something about it on FB!
No snowdrops in my garden that I can see but I do have heads on my Daffs out the front. Something has def gone wrong with the world!
OH is out tonight so have the place to myself! And a bag of Jelly Babies!! Woo hoo!!!
I'm here Dove
I'm here til the dinner's cooked
I'm here too
Enjoy your jelly babies Panda I'm staring at a box of liquorice all sorts wondering how to get to them without anyone knowing I've opened the box. Maybe cut the tape, gently empty 3 or 4....or more......then tape it again. Foolproof? It's not cos I'm greedy it's more a devillish challenge
No snow here, nor any sign of it, but someone on the radio said there's been a "whiteout" near Bury St Edmunds, in Suffolk - a whiteout means snow to me
We've had our supper Nut, a big dish of linguine with a mixture of roasted home grown tomatoes from the freezer, chopped onion and yellow sweet pepper, with some chopped white chicory with crushed garlic and chopped chilli and chopped anchovy, all softened n EVOO until caramelised on the edges, tossed with a big handful of chopped parsley and chopped black olives and washed down with a Cotes de Rhone - a real summery dish, and I'm absolutely stuffed
got one large bar of fruit and nut and a bar of dairy milk . a bag of thorntons toffee stil from christmas but tea first
Verdun don't eat the lot, save me the round ones with little bobbles on, blue & pink ones.
Dove early supper for you, are you up walking at 5am tomorrow ? Meal sounds like my H would love it, not a pasta fan myself. Red vino sounds my thing, however not on a school night, yipee just remembered I don't work anymore
Hi Lily & Panda
Archie it stopped for a time, had another go and then had a rest, now it's frosting over.
Soz Stacey, missed you, as penance I will knit some boots for your chucks..what sizes are they
Do hope you can keep them foot root ? ? free.
KEF, I'm not a huge fan of pasta, but I do like linguine done like this. It's a real favourite in the summer, with home-grown courgettes complete with their flowers, ripe toms and a handful of herbs and green leaves of some sort from the garden - then we eat out on the terrace with a bottle of French rosé - it can't be long before we can do that again, can it ?
I'm out there tomoz' Dove with a Greek salad and my Parka on and that's for brekkie..
Almost time for Winterwatch on tele'. ..no wrong think it is on later tonight.
