Hi guys, been a lovely day here on the Wirral, just feels like hopefully that cold spell is finally on its way out. A bit of a nip in the air tonight but fingers crossed our weather is on the up. Haven't been around for a little while hope you all had a good Easter, x Barbara

Talkback: Wintery weather

Today has felt really warm on the Wirral, actually feels springish, haven't had my heating on yet. Feel as if I want to go to Ness Gardens later in the week with it being so nice today. Checked the forecast for the coming week and the temps are slowing creeping up......please God the warmer weather is now on its way.

Sweet peas

I am not too good with sweet peas Loz, haven't got a greenhouse so I grow mine on my window sill but as of yet I have had no success, they always grow leggy.......will try growing them outside when the weather warms up.

I had cosmos seeds in my cold frame during this cold spell and NOTHING.....not a peek from anything so have brought them inside to see if that will get them started, not sure but will see if it works.

Hello everyone, haven't been on the GW sitefor quite a while, didnt think I could garden again so left the site. Had an accident afew years ago which left me with problems that were getting worse so thought I I would have to give up gardening.......saw my doctor this week and he has told me not to give up but take it easier so have slowed my gardening agenda down.
Am Happy now, Gardening is pure joy for me except for the aches, pains and discomfort I feel, but am thrilled now that I can continue.
Have missed being on this site. Best wishes to everyone and all newcomers, Barbara.
