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.
Depressed of Kent.
Frank, I imagined you playing and singing that Very cheering.
Rain rain and more of it, ground now sodden again and there doesn't seem to be let up at the moment
It has been a lovely day here but in North Cornwall this morning they had a blizzard. Temperature still not much in the shade and the soil feels distinctly chilly to the touch..
WManchester- dry & dull all day, washing outside though. Have been sowing seeds for propagator inside house using greenhouse staging as a bench.
I spent a lot of time yesterday, in rain & sun (!) up at daughter's. She now has a pond & 2 side streams, not deliberate, in her back garden after the recent rain. Ok now I have to learn how to cope with a sunny, soggy, clay soil site. Not easy when have a dry, part-shade one here!
This morning there was snow on the cars up there! Only 12miles away, but nearer the Pennines. J.
Started to snow here in sunderland but its 5 degrees outside so not lying at all. Wish it would brighten up.
Rain all day, 6°, but there are some daffodils coming out, but mostly the cream ones. The yellow ones usually come out first, but most of them seem to be blind. Could that be because we had a drought in 2011 that lasted until May 2012? No local hay for sale in 2011, bought it in Northern France for 3 times the price.
It is sunny and dry but having been out most of the day - visiting- I can assure you that the wind is soooo cold. First thing this morning there was a dusting of snow on the Hills.
Daffodils still only thinking about opening out
Another wet day. I'm on leave Monday and Tuesday, so here's praying for dry weather.
Sowed more seeds today, toms and peppers are now started. Also sorted the seed box.... Oooh...it was like looking through a treasure chest. There were loads of radish, spring onion and carrots. The carrots must have been freebie's as I've never been able to grow them. If I sowed one seed each of the tom varieties there wouldn't be enough room to grow them all...makes a mental note to stop buying tom seeds
