And now back to the weather...cold here today but snow melting a lot more. Our road is like a skating rink - I never did like skating.

I'm in for the night, am a wimp when it comes to cold weather. Am sorry I didn't record 'allotment wars", my dad said it was funny. I was too busy messing around with my IPad (new toy), maybe it will come around again.

This is the first time I have collected seed, I put them in an envelope ,then in a biscuit tin which I put in the airing cupboard, not sure how they will turn out but am giving it a go.

What's the weather like in your area?

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.
