Lovely here in Cheshire and I noticed all the catkins out on the Hazel trees when I went out. Truly a sign that winter is proceeding in the right direction towards Spring. It was great to see the sun but it does make driving difficult with the sun being so low in the sky, not complaining though.

Your frogspawn dilemma puzzles me as it never appears here until March. It is amazing how it survives ice when it does appear. I think my two goldfish are more of a threat in my pond. I am wondering if they have survived this winter so far. I am looking forward to hearing the courting frogs which usually happens in February. We have had a lovely day here though very cold.

Guernsey I am so surprised that you get frost and ice being so close to the sea. My friend in north Cornwall tells me that they never have frost down there and really enjoys coming back to Cheshire for a glimpse of the white stuff. It is bright and a bit chilly here at the moment but certainly no ice.

Very interesting photos Johnny. I googled the floods in Calgary in 2013 as you suggested and it certainly was a frightening time. The city in your pics looks fantastic though.

Sleet earlier on here in Cheshire but just grey and miserable now. Me and OH will go to our local garden centre later on and claim our free potatoes as offered in my Gardeners' World mag. That should cheer me up, also need some broad bean seeds and some compost. I think I may have a two for one token for afternoon tea somewhere. The day can only get better!

At last! The sun has been shining all day and I even opened up the greenhouse for a couple of hours. It was very misty this morning early on as I accompanied OH to the docs to have his stitches out. The mist soon dispelled though to give us this beautiful day here in Cheshire.

Grey and drizzly yet again in Cheshire though still warm for January. I would much prefer bright and frosty but we have to put up with whatever comes our way. OH bought me some daffodils this morning so they will certainly cheer me up.

Lovely photos posted, sorry to hear about your woes Palaisglide. Hope your family are soon better. The sunshine should cheer everyone up anyway. If Winter comes can Spring be far behind.? (Quote from Shelley )

Snow arrived here in Cheshire last night though I am still waiting to see the landscape in daylight. It takes so long for the mornings to get lighter in January doesn't it. I do feel for the commuters in this weather and hope my grown up offspring get to work safely.

There is a yellow warning of snow here in the North West, possibly arriving at lunchtime. I am glad that this is not a warning of yellow snow! Take care everyone when out and about.
