Managed two half hour sessions out in the garden cutting up huge bamboo shoots so green wheeliebin now out to be emptied tomorrow morning.  It was cold but sunny so I did get some Vitamin D!

Foggy this morning and only 0 degrees still/  Forecast promises lots of sunshine but chilly.  Need to pile on the layers and take in some sunshine so hope they are right and the fog disperses soon.

Only 3 degrees this morning and max forecast is 6 so not expecting to get any gardening done outside today.  Still hoping for some milder days this week.

Not quite so mild this morning at 5 degree and high of only 6 forecast but should stay dry though overcast.  I have to go to the shops for milk and eggs  so can test how comfortable it feels outside.  Borderline temperaturewise I think for gardening.

10 degrees already in Bristol but raining now.  Still I should get out there tidying up after the big onslaught on the terrace yesterday.  I will take some pictures if it stops raining.

Son no 1 arrived for lunch and has been working in the garden all afternoon.  I helped a bit cutting up prunings till the green wheelibin was stuffed.  Lots more light coming in to the terraces now.
