This part of the NW must have your sun, Jo, as it was another lovely day, no rain or wind and the sky was a meditrainean blue with white cloud this evening.
The longer evening has made such a difference, got home from work and there was still a couple of hours daylight left to enjoy the garden.
Hope it's nice on Saturday, going to the Nationalno gardening for me.
Cornwall. Lovely sunshine, freezing wind and hard frosts at night. Lovely starry skies.
Cannot do much outside except clearing up dead growth and weeds.
Stockton sunny and bright, still that nip in the air from the easterly wind though.
Bright sunshine and a degree warmer than yesterday reaching the dizzy heights of 8c. but it is creeping up, so not too bad.
No frost overnight - yippeeee, slight cloud at 1st then lovely sunshine again. My cheeks are quite pink having been out for a few days in the sun!
Stockton sunny although the wind is biting. Both lawns had first cut and trim so they will be feeling it.Shopping for compost and seed today time to start, better late than lose everything by being too early.
Seemed cooler here today, we didn't get any wind, Frank. It's not as cold this evening either so am thinking it's nearly time to get the spuds planted out.
Came home with afew extra hours of daylight left so watered plants in GH. Haven't bought any new multi purpose compost yet was waiting to hear the verdict from others but am tempted this year to get the big bags instead of a load of grow bags.
Yesterday, Thurs. supposedly the first warmer day was freezing! I only lasted in the garden for 10 mins. Today, again brilliant sunshine but still very cold. Am now building a bonfire with dead weed tops etc. The pond is not thawing until mid day.
I buy my JI No 2 seed compost in multiples of threes, £12.00 for 3, I keep an open one in the conservatory to keep it at room temp. for sowing and potting on. I have tried all sorts of different grow bags and cheaper composts but it has ended up a false economy.
Hi all ,another mild sunny day in Drogheda got my fist early's in today Red duke of york, no rain forecast till next week
Lots of white cloud here in the NW, little sun but although it went cool this evening it wasn't as cold as usual.
JD - I'm, beginning to think lots of grow bags is false economy, so am going to opt for a 3 for 2 offer this year, just haven't decided which to get.
Adam- think you should have a lighting up party when the last of the cable is laid.
Stockton on Tees, cool part cloud part sun.Daf's still closed up. Primroses still in full bloom, Pansies undecided and I do not blame them.No snow drops as yet, crocus vanished although we have swathes of them along the roadsides all still got their heads down, the herbs are OK and showing some growth they are sheltered from the wind a wall behind them and a sunny dry spot.Little glimmers of hope and I got three bags of Compost brought to me today £10 for three so not expecting too much but then I mix it.
The sun is out but it is still so cold. Now have a cold/lurgy so staying indoors and kniting and catching up with you lot. Theres always so much going on.
Lovely day here, in the NW.
Aintree in Liverpool was baked in sunshine.
Zoomer, Aintree, are you sure you got the right day, Ladies day was Friday??
Stockton on Tees bright sunshine and WARM? windows open to let cooking smells out and fresh air in, I am in short sleeves again and as you can see I am on this machine between cooking so Gardening this afternoon.
