The sun is shining and it is very pleasant here in Cheshire though it has been cloudy most of the day.  

Still having to water at night which is a price worth paying for.

Yesterday our gardening U3A visited Myerscough college in Preston.We had an invitation to go around the grounds and botanical greenhouses at this agricultural college for free and what a wonderful place it is. It was quite a way to get there in Lancashire from our place in Cheshire but well worth journey. I would highly recommend this tour if you get the chance๐Ÿ˜Š

You may have a point there! Especially the comment about waiters bringing me iced drinks!

Lucky you Hostafan 1, it is unbearable here in Cheshire and I am sitting in a north facing room with the fan on unable to do a thing. I love the climate in Spain and even tolerated the heat in Barbados last year but I find the UK heat intolerable for some reason. Perhaps it is the humidity here and also the lack of a swimming pool!. Hope you have an easy day at work

It's the pollen that defeats me. I water early on in the morning when the pollen count is at its lowest.

The garden is a joy to go around first thing. I am alarmed at the absence of insects. I haven't seen one butterfly this year and very few bees. I don't use insecticides or anything harmful and have a bug hotel in a tree. I have many frogs however in my pond though and lots of birds on my feeders.

Just got back from Spain to find my garden overgrown. I love it  like this as it has a magical feel to it with all the birds and other wildlife undisturbed. I have had to weed the veggie patch though in spite of the dry conditions. Don't worry folks, now we are back there will be plenty of rain ๐Ÿ˜Š

Woke up this morning to snow. Hopefully the sun will melt it all away soon. Spring where have you go gone! After all the heat last week this snow is a bit of a shock

Same here Obelixx, lovely day in Cheshire apart from a cold wind. We had a lovely walk along the canal and saw many spring flowers out in bloom. We watched Swallows and House Martins sweeping over the water as they fed on insects. Forecast to be much colder tomorrow, brrr!

A nice day here in Cheshire and warmer than forecast. I am off to Spain in a week's time and wondering what to do with my tender plants. That is the problem with early holidays. Most of my greenhouse plants will survive better in the house I think.

Goldfish with feelings!

I wouldn't believe this if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.
