Worst Winter ....... .?

Posted: 12/10/2013 at 12:06

I prefer mild, damp winters. Don't like the cold and when it's dry and sunny here in winter it can be very cold. When we moved to France in '85 it was dry and sunny and -25° - hated it, the heating oil froze.

Summer is usually hot and dry, need some rain to top up the water table.

HELLO FORKERS!

I wondered what WUM meant too.

Matty, so glad dog is feeling better.

Still raining. Don't seem to have done anything except look at emails, and book RyanAir for flight to England in the Easter hols. More expensive than I thought.

Morning all. Unlike Pentillie, I rather enjoyed all the excitement yesterday! Shame Pentillie doesn't want to stay here, he/she (sorry) was the one who started the lovely happiness thread.

Rained in the night. Pouring now. No gardening for me. But at least the ground will be softer for the next batch of bulb planting.

As Dove said Southwold had got very expensive, I looked up my grandparent's old house on Zoopla. I was amazed! It was an average, though pretty, terraced house with a small courtyard garden. Worth now  £840,000!!!!

Hello Brumbull, as well. I said hello on one of the other threads too, but just in case you didn't see. Hope you are better now and have enjoyed your travels.

Hello Bev, glad you found us over here.

So many posts, taken me ages to catch up and now it's bedtime. Been quite busy today. Nearly didn't get to the garage in time to pick up repaired car. Local farmer rang to say the horses were in his field a kilometre away. It was full of lush grass, unlike my fields. The electic fence is faulty, but they've never gone off like that before.

Glad Punkdoc liked my idea of January.

Good Evening FORKERS

Seems to me it's not cheaper after all. I've never used it though.

I wonder if slugs have got my 2 year old Montana. It flowered well this spring, then we had dry summer and it was fine but  it collapsed in September and looks dead. It rained in September.
