Morning Pauline and KEF

Greenhouse in Winter

Posted: 09/02/2015 at 07:12

Interesting Frank - whereabouts are you?  What size is your greenhouse and how do you heat it? 

Edited to add:  Having read some of your other posts I see that you're up on the east coast of Scotland.  Given some of the low temperatures we've had down here in East Anglia I presume that you have some sort of heat in your greenhouse?

Good morning Wintersong and anyone else who's about

3.2C at the moment and dry - when the builders have been shown where the kettle and hobnobs are we're heading down to Southwold to visit the Aged Ps - if the weather holds we'll go down to the harbour for lunch and a walk, and maybe get some fish from one of the fishermen's huts.  It'll be good to get away from dustsheets

It means that the population has seriously declined and they're considered endangered.

House Sparrows are on the Red List.

I love the alpinas too Bekkie - so pretty and no trouble at all.  The other alpina on that fence that I'm particularly fond of is a pink Willy

Apparently Red Admirals have started to overwinter in parts of the UK, and then on sunny days they'll pop out to feed - yet another reason why it's so important to have some nectar-rich flowers around at this time of year
