On the Wirral it has been lovely today, sun all day and blue skies, snow has melted a lot but there is still ice in many places. The sun felt lovely and warm this morning on my face while I was waiting for the bus , roll on spring! Has gone a lot colder now but has been nice to see the sun. My baby pansies are doing ok, I grew them a bit late in September but they have survived, got them in a sheltered place, thort the snow and ice would kill them off.

I have quite a few geranium cuttings which are doing ok on my kitchen window ledge and bathroom. I have been watering them sparingly over the winter and they are doing ok, was wondering if I need to give them a light feed every so often until I can harden them off late spring. I live in a flat and have a balcony.

Yes, they are rubber with metal studs, bit of a job getting them on my shoes but they are very secure. Think I paid about ??10 for them from a sports shop. I had a nasty fall during that bad winter a few years ago and felt it was worth getting a good pair.

Snowing slightly on the Wirral, was heaviest this morning. I skidded a few times, so thort it would be a good idea to put my ice grips on. Felt like superwoman, could do cartwheels, run, jump, there was nothing holding me back.

Northern Light

I would love to see the northern lights, my brother is going to Iceland later in the year and should be able to see them very well. There is a websit for the auraura which has some magnificent photographs and also I think holidays. There was a web page where it said you could see them in the UK.
