Left home for Nunthorpe in sunshine, three miles later in raging down pour arrived at Nunthorpe in sun but bitter cold.
Had a great Party "err" I think, woke up in my Hotel room to brilliant sunshine over the Roseberry Topping, what a view. A nice slow breakfast then wandered home into pouring rain. Two sides of the river Tees and two weather systems.

Its nice and sunny now Frank,  you should have waited a bit longer,  bitter cold though this morning when I got up 3.3c in the garden and only 8.7c now,  supposed to get down to -5 through the night now wonder my seeds aren't growing.!

Well weather a bit changeable today, but have seen the sun briefly. A few showers, wind is chilly and I think it's going to be a cold night. Have set some more seeds, onion sets and leeks. All covered over from the cold, pests etc. Wish it would warm up now!!!!

I've woken up to a very wet and dismal day  Starting to really tire of this weather now.

I work solidly all through autumn and winter sometimes eighteen hours a day (I am a person of extremes) so, come spring, I am in need of rest and relaxation and gardening is my ability to recover from all that exhausting work, but at this rate, I might as well keep working!

East Midlands is beautifully sunny this morning

Brenda I too am surprised to see
Clear blue skies the sun shining on me
The odd puff ball, contrails oh so high
From passenger jets as they go flying by,

The meat's in the oven I open the door
Out into the sunshine vitamin D to store
I soak up the sunshine check out the borders
Will try to sort out the current disorder,

Sweet peas to go out tomato's to settle
Herbs to pot on and bushes to fettle
Some back breaking work but also time
In a favourite seat soaking up the sunshine.

Has summer arrived I wonder, hope it does for you soon Wintersong.

Yet another morning spent working in the garden in the rain.

I can handle the rain and we do need it, but I just want it to warm up. Looking at the temperature gauge just a few moments ago, it's still to rise above +7 degrees and has been like this for weeks!  

I also feel for the few NGS gardens that are open in my area. The rain and cold can't be doing then any favours.
