Oh and now it's blowing a gale!

Dull, grey day with a few showers. Not very warm but no sign yet of any snow. {Thank goodness}


Sudden downpours, dark and cold.....brrr


The weather here (S France)  has been the usual April showers/storms for a few weeks now but much colder than usual for this time of year.  There is more snow on the mountains now than there has been all winter!  It was better today, though - no rain, at least!

very wet all day here in Sandwell in the West Midlands



Grim through most of the day here on the southern edge of Dartmoor. Potted on some courgettes in the greenhouse, found some tent pegs to anchor down netting for mangetouts and sweet peas which went out into the garden on Monday.

Sieved a load of potting compost in preparation for more potting on tomorrow.

I put my pepper seeds in to warm compost in a small propogator and put the clear plastic lid on making sure the vents were closed and stood it on top of the double radiator in the kitchen,they were up in a week,planted them into large seed tray,now have 12 little pepper seedlings



Grey, wet,cold and windy here on the Wirral all day today.

We had snow only a couple of weeks ago, powow, on the other side of the county, really odd weather for this time of year.

Looked like it was going to get out nice this morning but has been dull and wet in this part of Lancashire. Peas are going out at the weekend regardless of the forcast, if left any longer they are likely to go to the garden in the sky so nothing to lose.

WET , WET , WET - and not the group!

We had a beautiful sunny day here in N.Ireland but the temperature wasn't above 10c the whole day even with little wind. Got loads done.

Lucky you - it's thrown it down all day here.

Mind you, we are officially in drought, so I shouldn't complain

Heavy showers all morning in Somerset, but it dried up for most of the afternoon.  But very chilly, and definitely not gardening weather.

Letter to the Telegraph today poses the question: "Is this the wettest drought since records began?"


Southampton-dry a the moment but boy oh boy some heavy showers yesterday-more expected today


Teesside, we got a good soaking too yesterday Geof so it was country wide. Today is all over grey cloud and when I put the bins out spitting a bit, still it is getting lighter by the minute from the East so we must have sea breezes this morning. It is green waste day so bags of lawn mowings I have saved, I use some well mixed with rougher stuff in my compost but have far too much to keep it all.



A bit grey, a bit damp, still cold. Heavy showers and strong winds forecast. Oh joy!


Northeast is still wet, dull and chilly.


Just heard on the radio in response to whether the hose pipe ban is still on in parts of the UK: "..apparently if you have a lot of them, you're allowed to use them to build a shelter from the rain." 


Well were are,  oh yes it's Thursday,  well on Monday it rained,  on Tuesday it rained,  on Wednesday it rained,  and today Thursday guess what it's doing yes its raining,  the Guiness Trust came round yesterday in the pourinr rain and cut the grass,  it got a bit chewed but at least it's tidy for now.
