Ventured out for 10 mins,thought "nah" & came back in.  Always lots to do indoors anyway.

NOT a glorious day here .  Forecast good, sun due 11ish to 3ish. Went for a snowdrop walk at Dunrobin Castle, temps around 7c & light grey sky all day. Felt cold, wore a scarf, but should have taken gloves!  Snowdrops were lovely still, unfortunately the sky wasn't!!   "Annoyedattheweathersmiley"

Thank you Caz & Bunny, just got in from a lovely meal including the most gorgeous little lemon meringue pie ever, mega-scrummy!!

OH bought me a potting bench, made of aluminium to go outside, beside the shed.  We put it together a couple of days ago. Looks very smart, but immediately covered it with plant pots, full & empty, & all sorts to deter any oik that might be passing!

 Dry & 3c on our way home.

Thank you Frank & Lavender.  Huuuuuge bouquet from OH, the phlox smells gorgeous.

out of season plants

I agree too.

Although it's good to get plants that have a long flowering season or lots of colours it just seems wrong to go too far.  The daffodil is a classic example - WONDERFUL when they arrive; herald of spring; hope for the future etc but by the end of their season I'm starting to say "oh, more daffs, ho hum"

What next; yellow snowdrops in August, blue roses in February or purple crocosmia in May??

About 11c but cloudy & cool breeze.  Visitor due so can't go out & do much today.

We have an "interesting" aroma at the moment too - the wind must be coming from the farm along the road & the cows are inside or small area outside the byre, so the smells are rather concentrated!

It Is Not Spring Yet !!!

I'm with you, Percy Grower - you really don't know whether to cut back now or wait "just in case." 

Got some trellis for a pyracantha from a local nursery recently & was advised to wait until "maybe even April" before cutting it back & training it onto it.

My secateur hand is twitching already........
