Geoff why are you saying it's too early to sow ? Most of my packets say sow March to May - I've always started them off round about now.

Afties - freezing here and we've just had a mad snow storm. It's stopped now but washing was out as it was bright and breezy this morning. Sun out again now.

Geoff - how come you keep getting strange e-mails.?

Think I'll do some more seeds seeing how i can't get outside.

Anyone know when it's due to get warmer ?

Bacon and egg buttie.

Hope OH alright Chris - I must have missed that as well

Morning  A nice sunny day here but we've had a frost over night . Woke up early to the dulcet tones of the heating kicking in. No snow though.

I'm really pleased with the Cosmos seeds making an appearance - I collected those last year. Never tried the home-grown variety , Still waiting for the Astrantia which I've left outside in a pot. Someone said said they had to be chilled to start them off.

More coffee I think. Watching the birds at the moment - we seem to be overun by blackbirds.
