Snowing heavily at dog pee time - 11 last night - Then agood covering this morning which has now become slushy. The garden is saturated AGAIN. The wind is blowing very cold. Son has just come in saying it's horrible out there.
Every now and again get a really sharp shower of sleet.
bonus is that the hills look amazing with their snow cap
Cold, cold wind; about 5c but feels like -10!!
Was away for 3 days so took a turn round the garden this morning just to say hello to my babies - it was a very quick turn!!
We were near Twickenham & expected spring to have sprung all over the place, but apart from some nice blossom it's about the same as up here (hehe). Our former neighbour says that everything in her garden is late this year & it's very sheltered there.
We may escape the current snow.......
Cold, dull, windy.
Fed up of SE.
Three inches of snow in Leeds and still snowing ! My poor chitted first earlies are waiting patiently to be planted out .... fat chance
Sounds like it's doing this outside (again)
And if I have to go out (to persuade doggy it's not that horrid) I've got my outfit ready
Driving snow and strong winds here. I ended my day in Chorley and drove home on the A6, the wind was so strong the car kept being blown about, drove a steady 45mph gripping the wheel, wish I'd had your brolly attached to the back bumper figrat, one driver behind was so impatient and drove so close I thought he was going to end up on the back seat wouldn't have minded but there were plenty of opportunities to over take
Here in the East Midlands it has been snowing most of the night and is still snowing. It's very wet tho...so I'm hoping that it won't last long. HAH!
You wait...another few weeks and I'll be moaning that it's too hot.
After the torrential rain yesterday, today we have snow and it's cold and I'm fed up.
Stockton bitter cold dull and flurries of snow, the sand bed stays switched off for another week
Still no snow......
About 6c out there & sunny now & again, but still v. windy.
Fixed a bit of windbreak material round the nearly out wall flowers. Too late I think, they're very droopy.
Here in Worcs stopped snowing about an hour agp,started snowing just before 11 last night.By the looks of the hills there is more to come - very grey and heavy and shrouded in cloud.

Tried to go up the garden to feed the birds and failed, snow too deep.
Bitterly cold and gale force winds here. It's been trying to snow all day.
Not gardening weather, so I've been to the children's cinema with friend and 3 three children followed by lunch out. When I got back, could not believe someone was out on the allotment, at the back of the house, digging over his plot, he'd dug over quite a lot too, all the other plots had snow patches on them and then I heard the ice-cream van arrive at the front
First post here and it's to join in the moans about the weather (typical Brit eh?). Had about 4-5" snow where we are in the East Mids. This stuff isn't like the last dry, powdery blanketing. This snow is heavy and wet and has flattened bamboo to the floor, bent a healthy Ceanothus double and has possibly dealt a death blow to a Choysia. Spent about 30 mins shaking the stuff from as many shrubs, trees and plants as possible to avoid further damage. Ggrrrr!! Roll on some warmer weather please. Windowsills getting cramped with seedlings and the cats may have to be evicted from their warm spots on the remaining sills for 'additions'
Brass monkeys outside in that wind today. Back garden exposed to the East wind, so no escape.
Was below freezing first thing today, although actually warmer (less cold) than at bedtime last night. Think it reached about 1-2C, but it certainly didnt feel even like that!
All our snow has gone, but daughter's garden still covered, about 12miles further North. OH stayed over in NEast Derbyshire where it snowed non stop all day yesterday. J.
