What a strange day .  About every half hour the weather has changed. 

 Very windy this morning & light snowflakes were going up & sideways.  A short burst of sun followed by rain, sleet then hail, all interspersed with bright spells.  5 mins ago I could barely see the keyboard (I'm in the sunlounge) & the snow was coming down in large flakes, now it's bright & just a few fine bits are coming down - and still blowing around, but the wind has abated a lot  don't like wind.

Cloud & sunshine here this morning, calm & still.

Fortunately I don't think that there was anything flying round in the wind yesterday - everything seems to be where I left it!

Glad it's all melting for most of you, still none here yet & 5c with beautiful bright sunshine.  The barometer is still very low though .

Last Feb/Mar was marvellous here, as I believe it was everywhere, but in April came the "lambing snow" so not unexpected, but much worse.  Mainly hill lambs here so ewes give birth much later supposedly to get better weather, but a lot of lambs died in the cold winds & snow/sleet.

Therefore when your ice & snow is just a distant memory I'll be on here reporting wintry conditions in the north!!

Hi Bunny, we're about 1.5 miles north of Beauly!  We were in a flat there for about 4 years waiting for this house & I really don't envy then the soil there - it's a horrible clay. My garden there was pots, troughs & tubs in the car park. Our soil is very good, but incredibly stony - small ones to boulder size!

Today I collected 14 "presents"  from the local moggies + 1 which might be from an owl? (not exactly an expert in animal c...c...c....droppings!) As the ground was still frozen at the back it was easier to pick up.  (Probably didn't do the grass too much good, though.)

Brilliant sunshine this morning though north-facing back garden was very slippery.  Reached about 5c & clouded over late afternoon. (Still no snow yet)

Main barometer is falling, falling, oo-er...........
