Sorry Verdun but I've stopped the cheque - the rain started about 2pm, & that's not the sort of service I expect for my £5.

BTW does anybody get an accurate temperature forecast at the top of the page??

Today it says zero/zero degrees & for tomorrow 0/-1.   It was 8c mid morning according to the car. I suppose it tries to cover the whole area, which further inland includes mountains currently covered in snow. Not a lot of use for the most populous area though .

I spent £50 today in the gc - most of that was on plastic trellis for the honeysuckle, & some seeds which I've not tried before.  OH bought half price set of 3 different sized obelisks for my birthday   in a couple of weeks.

I won't be getting choccies as we try not to eat too much of tht kind of thing - we've just started on our 2nd Easter egg (yes, last year's!)  However there's a very good florist nearby........

We did have cake in the gc though - had to have something to help the tea down with...........

I realised last year - their first year in the garden, that monarda & achillea were trying to elbow all of their neighbours out of the way.  They look as if they can fairly easily be controlled though. ( I hope !!)

Bit of snow & sleet which turned to rain by 10.30.  Dull, wet & about 3c.

Bright & sunny morning, spent several hours outside, but wind very cold.

Snow forecast tomorrow turning to rain, but I'm at the dentist.

Zoomer - I would think that the roads will be alright - generally it's due to warm up, up here over the next few days.

I'll try & find time tomorrow for a "play"

I hope tomorrow finds you on the upward path & leaping around like a spring lamb!!

Well, perhaps not leaping.........yet!!
