Oooh Chicky, have fun hope the weather stays dry. Look forward to your pics. Where abouts are you visiting. Hope you have a lovely time, I really enjoyed my walk the other day.

Lily - this is a private garden - not that big - so not really a "walk".  The owner is in our gardening club and has a bit of a passion for snowdrops - he opens it up every other year for us all to look around

Chicky - how lovely   does the owner permit photographs? 

15/02/2014 at 09:33

Oh, daffodils have been opening lately so spring is DEFINITELY near.  As last year, I forecast a good summer. 

15/02/2014 at 09:35

Thank you Verdun, I shall be ready for a good summer.

15/02/2014 at 09:38

15/02/2014 at 09:47

Not too soon - I'd like a nice spring first.  Fed up of all this weird weather.

Morning all  Have been up for a bit reading through the forum 

Still blowy here (understatement!!) but am damage free - sorry to hear about your car port Nut  and sympathies to anyone else with damage.

Kef, you dirty stop out!  Glad you had a good night. Did you go with the wellies?

Not much on the cards today, was going to pop into town but on reflection I may stay in the warm and do some . . . HW

Oops nearly stepped on you Panda. No didn't do wellies, biker boots instead

Glad you missed me, wouldn't feel so good all squashed and flat

Hi all   Just got off phone from son - they live a mile inland on the Suffolk coast - it's very very windy there at the moment.  His football match has been cancelled for H&S so he's organising an indoor 5 a side later today to keep fitness levels up.  

Do you remember that about a fortnight ago they had a lightening strike and tornado which damaged his neighbours' roofs and brought tiles down onto son's driveway - well next door have got scaffolding up and the tiles are stacked in piles on the scaffold boarding - or they were last night!  

Now they're all in son's driveway - that's the second time his and DIL's cars have narrowly escaped being hit by falling tiles from that roof.

Yesterday he phoned the builders and warned them that it might happen and they said that it was too dangerous to go up the scaffolding and bring the tiles down - his comments about why they stacked them there in prevailing weather conditions were unprintable!

Load of jeans hung out on the line - Alan4711 - if they come blowing past you, can you catch them for me please? 

15/02/2014 at 12:28

Hi Dove, glad no car damage. Is your son having to move the tiles from his drive or is builder coming? Second thoughts builder better not go.

Shall I suggest a new training exercise for the footballers KEF?
