Never had that trouble with hyacinths as I love the scent but then I am a bit of a butterfly I suppose!

I am very well GWRS thank you.  I hope you are ditto.  Very wet this morning in Bristol but just stopped raining and i can see blue sky.  Much milder at 7 degrees already and forecast is milder still into February so as long as the rain relents now and again should get some gardening done.  Four vines still need pruning and roses after that.

You will just have to take my word for it - these Jan Bos hyacinths are scenting the whole bungalow.

Green wheeliebin filled up again in the brilliant sunshine.  Even tulips up now and daffs growing away.  Can imagine spring in a few weeks now.  Should have some crocuses for Valentine's Day.

A bit milder this morning at 3 degrees and forecast to reach 7 in the afternoon but rain this evening.  It seems like a long time since we had any rain.  Sunshine expected about 10 am too so may get started on filling up the green wheeliebin again.  There is a big queue of weed baskets waiting to be emptied.

I had to put out the bins for emptying tomorrow morning and two pairs of gloves were needed.  It is very cold out.

Bitterly cold out so no gardening today.  Only forecast to get to 3 degrees at about four pm!  Next four days much milder though but rain in the mix too.  Still we do not have icicles like my sister has this week in New Brunswick.  Difficult to see out her window for the frost now.

A repeat of yesterday's weather today I think.  Forecast to get to 7 in the afternoon so I shall wait for that before I go out in the garden.  Going to be much colder tomorrow as windy weather is on the way which will make it feel much colder and only 4 degrees forecast.  Brrrrr!

Brrr it is cold this morning, only -2 degrees still but I can see blue sky and 7 degrees are forecast for late in the afternoon.  Everywhere is white outside but my Xmas flowers are still greeting me in the kitchen each morning with a wonderful scent.

Managed half an hour outside and feel exilerated by the fresh air.  May do some more after lunch if the sun stays out.

Talkback: Using nettles in the kitchen

I too am a nettle lover, Kate. Nettle tea is delicious. You can buy the dried variety if you do not have your own source.
