Global warming

Posted: 13/02/2017 at 15:14

I cannot deny that global warming is happening but I do have a distinct memory of when bringing my daughter and son home from hospital newly born, the daffodils were out on 23rd March and the crocus were out on the 16th February. They are 47 and 44 years of age now. Just saying.

What is your weather like? (2)

Oh Johnny that scene looks awesome. We are preparing ourselves for a spell of -2c temperatures over much of the UK so we don't know how lucky we are.I don't expect we will have more than a few flurries of snow and all around will be chaos! I expect you are used to your cold winters and have the right clothing and other preparations in place.

Flumpy,  I notice that you have one of those garden light things tucked in your lovely heather. I have a couple of them but they have never seemed to work, I am wondering if yours work and shine at night like they are supposed to do ?

Flumpy, I did not thank you yesterday for your good wishes for my brother-in-law. My sister rang this morning to say that her OH is out of hospital for the weekend, good news I hope. His lung was punctured when he had a pacemaker fitted. Not at all good especially when the patient has emphysema. Still he does seem to be holding up.We are all hoping and praying for the best.

Your spring flowers and your table cloth look lovely Marion. I hope you have the sunshine down in Somerset which we have in Cheshire to cheer you along,  together with your table!

Lovely but cold day here. OH out getting up the last of the leaves from my neighbour's Magnolia tree. It is such a nuisance being enormous and shading my greenhouse. Not going to fall out over it though. We are good friends and life is too short to make a fuss. The tree does look beautiful when in flower but I do wish it wasn't so HUGE.

Lovely Joyce, I am so jealous as it is gloomy and horrid here. As I posted on another site the weather matches my mood as I am so worried about my brother-in-law who is undergoing an operation this afternoon. Your lovely photos of your garden Joyce cheered me up.

Joyce, I have just spotted  your photos which you have posted. Your garden is beautiful even in it's winter colours, the bones are there. I bet it is lovely to look out on. I have just had some worrying news from my sister at the local hospital about her husband and the pictures are just what I need at present to concentrate the mind on. Thank you for posting.

Bird feeders

Sheps, you certainly have a good cleaning routine. I'm afraid the seeds which escape to the ground get eaten up by the pigeons and blackbirds. I do move the feeding station  from time to time.

Thank you madpenguin I will explore all possibilities. We have repuditley rats in the area so it is important for me to find a reliable feeder which will not collapse!


Thanow everyone for your input.

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