Anyone oop North started planting yet ?

Posted: 18/03/2013 at 09:39

I'm in Northern Italy. Have a lovely day of sunshine, wander into the garden, plant some seeds.  The next morning wake up to either a very hard frost or a foot of snow.  Every year I think - I'll wait a little longer before I plant, but then the sun comes out and I can't wait.  Really think I have lost all sense of reality - spend the winter collecting the snow into a 2000 litre waterstorage, because here in the summer it is red hot and the garden is desperate for water.  Oh for a North Yorkshire summer !!!

Has spring arrived for you yet?

No spring yet, just more snow.  But a few snowdrops are out, and the tulips and daffodils are just starting to poke their heads out.  I'm in Piedmont, Italy and the weather this winter has been strange, almost Spring one day then back to winter the next.

Where is everybody from...

I'm from Yorkshire, but have lived for the last 7 years in a small village, up a mountain in Piedmont, Northern Italy.  Today it is snowing  and I am really missing good old Yorkshire weather.  Do hope spring arrives soon..
