After being off air most of the day Yahoo Chrome tried to take over my laptop, Son had to reset and reboot everything he managed to send it into oblivion so new passwords to remember, I hate Yahoo, "oops sorry" wrong thread.Stockton as Rain said was blotted out and very cold, I went off shopping whilst Son had best of three falls with the laptop and did a long wander round the lanes. The sun came out and the temperature rose slightly, I was surprised at how much water is still on the fields, quiet roads and warm in the car although fingers freeezing when I stopped, still a couple of weeks to seed sowing yet.Snap Jeannie, I use an aluminium staging against a fence to pot up and sow stuff, usually have to clean it off before I can use it.
Glorious day. Been digging the clay pit for last 2 days and just about finished. Next dry day I will stamp out a path in the clay, that bit then need not be composted.
Actually got down to rolling up sleeves - wonderful and OH tidied up grass by running mower over on high so that it's all even.
Very foggy and frosty start to the day but by lunch time the sun was out and a very pleasant afternoon.
Got nearly all the important gardening jobs done for now, so feeilng quite pleased.
NOT a glorious day here . Forecast good, sun due 11ish to 3ish. Went for a snowdrop walk at Dunrobin Castle, temps around 7c & light grey sky all day. Felt cold, wore a scarf, but should have taken gloves! Snowdrops were lovely still, unfortunately the sky wasn't!! "Annoyedattheweathersmiley"
We've had a beautiful day today, the hottest day this year. Went to Steyning with my mum and had a wonderful lunch in the cobblestone tearoom, will definately go back there but not tomorrow as rain is forcast.
Bitter bitter cold with a cutting North westerly wind, not that strong just very cold, the highest it got to was 8.3c managed about half hour in the garden my hands were frozen so called it a day, it's now 1.2c so I guess there will be a frost tonight
Bright and sunny here reached a staggering 12C
Strange, since my last post nearly 3 pages ago I haven't had an update email about this thread. Had howling gales here today. Bit scary. Tree fell onto track to house. Was going to plant onion sets but too windy.
I was out yesterday in my garden, it was 20c - was beautifull, says it will be 11c today but cloudy, lets see.
Sue H, is it grey?
Hello Bunny, yes box is ticked. Sometimes there's a hiccough, like when it doesn't say "view first unread post" so you have to look in latest posts to get to the page when there are lots. Sometimes it forgets to remind me about a thread I'm following.
Anyway, weather - raining. But at least the wind has gone. Had 2 calls last night from village council, they are trying to work out what to do with the tree that blew down on the track yesterday. Trunk has snapped halfway up, sitting on bottom half, top of tree resting on another tree other side of track, so trunk is high up like a bridge. Farmers has cut away lower branches so you can drive under it. Whole thing needs removing and it's over our telephone line.
It's still working, Sue, even with the tree leaning on it. But I'm afraid they may break it when they remove the tree - then no phone, no internet.
