Wild out there today. Wind really strong, but funnily enough I didnt think felt as cold when first walking today- still wore the gloves though- until I started back home facing right into the wind!!
Sun sort of trying, Washing still on the line. It's about 10C out the back now, but because the garden faces East, feels a lot colder when out there today.
The only gardening done today was the opening of coldframes & staking a dahlia before it snaps, despite still being in a coldframe. J.
Nice morning, but cold. In the middle of weeding and doing the "Chelsea Chop" on huge rudbeckias when heavens opened.
Not wet,but cold and so............. windy
First post on the forum. Wish I could say the weather was better here but cloudy and dull... as ever!! Off to London this weekend, what's it like there??
welcome to the forum,nice to have someone else from The West Country.
Welcome Josh. Everyone is really helpful and friendly on here- and on internet too much when the weather is too bad for gardening
The weather here is a four-letter word, take your pick! Removed the plastic bags that covered my dahlias and the fleece from raised bed (they predicted frost last night but warmer today 6°) and what happened half an hour later, it hailed! Luckily only small pea sized:
Cold, wet and windy.
Blue skies,sunshine and the wind has dropped,I,m sure it can,t be Bank Holiday weekend
It's bright, sunny, blue sky no wind....cold last night though.
Cold and wet. Poured in night, woke me up.
Stockton is Sunny and warm, clear blue sky. The bedding was stripped washed and on the line drying early, take advantage is my motto.
Kent had a chilly start but the sun managed to make an appearance by the afternoon and the wind even warmed up a bit. I do believe it turned into a marvellous day
Stockton today another warm sunny day until now, cooling down a bit and wind getting up although a very good weekend all round.Did not get much done in the garden today, daughter brought the wedding DVD's so we watched them then cut a load of extra discs on my laptop.The old machine did the job well so I am asking myself why buy a new one?
Over the weekend we had two days of sunshine, so planned to plant out courgettes and squash today but it's rained all day. Beginning to think this is not going to be a good year for growing veg.
Sunny and windy (listen... Oh no it's dropped... No there it is again).
Quite balmy at times, and when the wind drops it's quite hot again. Washing dried really quickly, and the frogs have been searching out the shady bits of the water feature.
We have three frogs. How did that happen? Well, I do know... But how did they get into our tiny water feature, miles from any other stretch of water? Amazingly their names are Bob, Trevor and Gloria. ( I had no idea they had names but my grandchildren told me this today!!!) I tried to photograph them (the frogs) but the result at first just shows the rocks in the pool... Then suddenly he's there. This one's Bob.
Another lovely day!
Another lovely day in Kent although I had to work the latter half.
Still chilly when the sun goes down but mostly the flowerbeds are responding, just got to hope the veg stuff has a decent chance to get going.
Wet, very. Outdoor tomatoes looking rather unhappy compared with the indoor ones. Too pale, not enough growth.
Wet, wet, wet today.
Am now going to leave both the coldframes wide open 24hrs.... otherwise things will never be hardened off.
At w/end Daughter planted out the courgettes that I'd grown for her, plus cloche for extra cover to start with as not fully hardened off my end, but just getting too big to transport easily.
She gave me some rather anaemic French bean plants that she'd grown. Hmm, hope they cope- still in my coldframe for the time being. J.
It's a glorious day today. Warm and sunny.
Love to get out Imto the garden but it's my volunteering day. Just hate being indoors when sun is shining.
Later I will plant out helenium moerheim beauty and sahins early flowerer and a little choice salvia called Cacalifolia. Not in same area though....moisture for heleniums and dry for salvia.
