Rain ,rain, and wind,the ford is flowing and means trouble,the soil is so soggy ,will it ever dry out!
Wind - blown over Christmas tree again
Damp with bursts of heavy rain.
Dry & surprisingly mild as I walked down to the hospital this morning. Wind increasing & trying to rain as I walked back. Got to about13C today.
Chucking it down now & very windy. J.
Cloudy and wet most of the day but was a lot warmer 11C according to the temp gauge in the car. I've acquired two extra re-cylcing boxes! Checked with neighbours and they've not lost any .
Showery & 6-7c today, but the wind is realy starting to get up now. I think everything's fairly secure.......
6° this morning, to be warmer later. Feels mild, no wind, sun trying to shine through hazy sky. (Dordogne)
Bunny, you cannot eat dog even in Dordogne.Stockton Clear blue sky sunshine and warm, long may it last.My Primroses are smiling at me having been in bloom since before Christmas through frost rain snow and they are still smiling whilst we moan.There is a long row of them all from one plant I was given years ago, they get cleaned and split every year as they die down and being sheltered from North and East winds do well.
Just squelched my way around garden and am pleased to announce I have snowdrops out - hooray.
The winds have dropped though are still here but not enough to make you stay in. The sun is out and at the moment the sky is blue.
Have to cut back a snow damaged shrub which would have been cut back in March,
Suddenly there seem to be loads of jobs. Oh Temp in greenhouse was 12.5 this morning
Beautiful morning in Lincolnshire. Sunny, a light wind and a bit milder. Snowdrops and hellebores blooming
windy here in southoxfordshire
Stockton the weather has suddenly changed, heavy winds trying to blow the trees over on my front, cloudy but travelling so fast the sun came back out as I write, it is a storm without the rain touch wood.Glad to hear the dog will not be casseroled and it is best to split primroses whilst still flowering although I hate doing that, just love the flowers.Rose, my snowdrops have been out a while but they have moved themselves over time from a fairly sunny spot round a corner into shade, I love it when nature shows you the way. A new set of bulbs will go in later to help clump them up.Chris, Flew over Lincolnshire quite a few times when doing aerial map reading, it was in small Auster spotter planes and I think it was because there were not many features to easily recognise, I followed the canals.
WManchester- started out dry & brightish. Not cold either. 2 lots of washing went outside, but as the wind increased I did wonder if it'd stay on the line.
Suddenly a huge rainstorm with really strong winds. Greenhouse roof panels- ploycarbonate- flapping & now a couple have slipped down & luckily stuck! No plants inside this winter, but wish I'd tidied away the cleaned pots on the staging- job for this w/end I think.
Going black out there again now. J.
Wind has really got up, and it's turned colder. Leaves flying about, not pleasant.
