Why not sow a few now and the rest later.  Sowing early if we have mild weather means lanky weak growth which can succumb to a cold snap as you found out last year.  I am a great believer of not putting all your eggs in the same basket.

I hope the cat has come home or at least has found a warm place in this cruelly cold weather. Flumpy.  beautiful blue skies and dry but too bitter to venture out. This is the time when TV would do well to show us round some lovely gardens in their full glory in the summer to get our imaginations flowing for our own gardens.

Awww,  She is no doubt sound asleep somewhere warm.  They are experts at finding warm spots on top of cars that have just been driven!

The Eastern coastline of the USA is just south of my sister and is expecting its lowest temperature in living memory tonight!  Yes Joyce last year they had freezing rain - imagine icicles raining down on your head instead of rain!
