The snow melted so we went out exploring this afternoon. Stopped in a market town that had a market that was just closing for the day. Bought 2 pheasants and 4 partridge for £10. All in the freezer, except 2 of the partridge which we'll have for Sunday lunch. Haven't had a partridge since the early 80s when we lived in England. Also bought a dressed crab and some cockles in the market for tomorrow evening. Had a beer in the pub too.

Morning all, snowing here in south Norfolk. OH has gone to the bank, I wish he hadn't.

No, I haven't. But don't start Cosmos too early as they grow fast and you'll have to find somewhere light and frost free to put them.

Morning all. White here too, but only a light sprinkle, though the flakes were quite big.

Couldn't stop coughing between 1 and 2am so slept on the sofa until 5am when I went back to bed.

Glad you made it, Chicky, I hope the salt mines are good to you today and you make it home again safely.

Well done DD. Bound to feel wobbly afterwards, but he doesn't know.

I hope everyone is OK on the east coast tonight, just seen the news.

You can start Lobelia in February, and pot on and put on a windowsill without afternoon  sun when they are big enough. If they have too much sun they go leggy and they are slow to take off so sowing early is OK.
