Freezing here early on and only 4C now with a distinct wind chill. There's something about long lasting lurgies this winter. Both kittens still sneeze so I'll be giving them a steam bath later on. They are otherwise fine and full of energy and purrs. Cosmos really enjoyed Loch lomond last night, trying to catch dippers and falling leaves under the beady eye of Bonzo who was, in turn,under th ebeady eye of Rasta who has become kitten guard dog. Minstrel contented herself with digging in my asparagus fern whilst unsupervised.
I have all my bishops in tubs to soak before I set them in trays of compost - Auckland, Canterbury, Leicester, Oxford and York plus After Eight. Now to make a space in teh annex where I can grow them on frost free while I wait for outside space and shelter.
OH is out playing golf in the sun. Rather him than me with that wind, not that you'd catch me wasting time on a golf course in any weather. No pruning anything here till this frosty spell is past but, wonder of wonders, there are buds on my rescued clematis that I found lurking in a weedy bed. Looking forward to seeing what it is.
Stay safe and warm everyone except Pat and Glenys who need to stay cool.
