More snow and jolly cold. Fed up.
Wet & increasingly windy here in Manchester. About 6-7C out there now.
If tomorrow is dry(er) I may, then may not, done wellies & waterproof gloves to finish cutting back the dead herbaceous at daughter's house. We're not totally sure yet what surprises await her, but time will tell. J.
The sun has appeared occasionaly today. The frogs have covered the pond in frogspawn so it is warm enough for something.
snow due overnight and tomorrow....
Yes I'm just watchin gthe forecast on the BBC and it's not looking very good for the whole of the country, heavy rain and snow oh and now thunder ho hum !
Dull, wet and windy here.
Not sown any toms yet, there hasn't been any room in the propagator. I've taken the cover of the chillies though so should have some room in a couple of days. Seedlings on the window ledge are looking OK.
Kinda dull and damp this morning with a light sea fret type rain, had very heavy rain through the night so the garden is water logged again, slight breeze and at 6.1c not to bad temperature wise I do see a break in the clouds so maybe just maybe the sun will get through.
Not gardening weather in Stockton but come next weekend the heated sandbox will be fired up and the Tomato seed will go in plus the first pots of sweet peas.I do not mess with them they go in deep pots out of the packet and left to set and grow on, then drop them out of the pot into position and sow some extra seeds around for a longer flowering time. I do not go with all the mystique for growing sweet peas.
Very soggy underfoot and poss more snow or rain to come. Last year at this time Nr Norwich we had a forthcoming Drought what a difference this year ... Please lets have a little sun.
Looked like rain all morning but stayed dry and the sun came out.
Started off making some fresh seaweed feed today. The lid on the bin must leak because it was full of old feed from last year, it doesn't age well.
Another cold, wet, windy day. It's never ending.

I think this is more suitable here than on fork handles
Maybe Derek, but what about the party??
Splashes of very heavy rain interspersed by luverly sun shine. Worked in GH, no coat. Temps last night above freezing (3C) Think it will be the same tonight as well
Hoping it means spring has sprung
Wet wet wet and predicted to get colder again. Very fed up not being able to get outside and get on
Blue skies smiling at meNothing but blue skies can I seeSunshine on the back of my neckWarm lovely sunshine "eh by eck"
Its much warmer today sorry to boastAlthough I see clouds over the coastWho cares as long as I can gazeOut of open windows at a heat haze.
Stockton today folks sorry about that Bunny and FloBear.
Dry for the present but heavy rain forecast for this afternoon. Am thinking of starting up a business of modelling clay pots.
