Posh verdenken Zeus, we seem to have upset him in some way.
Teesside is sunny, rainy, sun with rain, rain with sun and very cold with it, my greenhouse is closed apart from some vents open for air circulation.
I see no point in trying to crowd more stuff in the GH and will wait for more clement weather, I will have a later show than usual no bad thing.

Hello HCF "just what is it about cutting grass that makes it start to rain"
I do not have the answer but "Cicero" would have had a quote for it, he had for most everything else.
Teesside sunny my side of the Styx do not know what was going on "Rains" side as you could only see a couple of miles, it was misty her side. Very cold on the eastern side of the house warm round the back so had the greenhouse open and got the clothes dry.
Our fields are full of Rape, they get that over and then get another crop in, some of those fields were flooded last week though it has not knocked the growth back.
Hay making in my time was a great time, cutting spreading turning then raking it up to load on the cart then stack, all labour intensive now it is a couple of machines and a grass drier. The Blackthorn is finished flowering but we have May flower and Elderberry along the many hedgerows, the canopy in the woods is now thickening with the wild garlic and Celandine in flower, blue bells are also in flower, it will all vanish as the trees get into full leaf.
I guess spring has sprung at last up here.

Teesside is sunny, well my half is I can see Eston Nab clearly but it does look a bit grey. The bedding is in the washer and I hope will go on the line, the Turkey breast ready to go in and will be served with roasties new potato's and veg, form an orderly queue.
Zoomer all my tomato's are greenhouse as that cold easterly wind from the North Sea can knock anything down in minutes. I have a nook with a seat behind the greenhouse where sitting and contemplating ones naval is both sheltered and a suntrap so a couple of sweet cherry tomato's go there in pots.
My Bluebells have flowered and they have crept along the bed again after thinning them out last year. The Bush Fuchsias are zooming up and nearly as tall as me, a haircut for them then.

Teesside has sunshine, some puff ball clouds one or two with black bottoms (they should name a dance after them).
Zoomer we sometimes send some spare sunshine to Billingham and now and then a little over the water to "Rain" living in a blessed area we can share some of it now and then.
Bushes getting a short back and sides after checking for nests, Tom's going into final positions and herbs being potted on with some new sowings.
Just finishing my cuppa and then back out.

Alina weeds are some peoples flowers
How else would we while away the hours
With hoe in hand and fork for thick roots
As to a myriad weeds we give the boot
Once more to get it all back in order
Sit back and enjoy our flower border.

Had an e-mail tonight from the Mail poetry competition accepting a poem for the Queens Jubilee, I read it back and thought it rubbish but then we are our own worst critics. One never knows.

Teesside today started with heavy rain then the sun came out around twelve.
Just been in the garden which is as wet as I have ever seen it usually it all flows downhill from here.
Must say the borders are flourishing in the warm wet weather including the weeds.

"Sorry Rain" they do say be careful what you wish for and I wished for some rain overnight having put weed and feed on the lawns. My side of the River Tees is wet and dour although when I put the bins out it is warm so I opened the Green house to let my tomato's get a breath of fresh air.
I cannot tell what weather you are having as I cannot see more than a couple of miles over the valley. "Oh well" lets hope for a better weekend then.

"Rain" we sent yesterdays rotten weather back across the Tees to you.
My lawn has had the feed and weed, the washing is on the line and the sun is still shining.
Hope it rains overnight to wet in the F&W though otherwise is will be out with the hose, no ban up here.

Teesside is having a right old dolly mixture day.
Sunshine from early on so I put a light coat on to go to town and as I reached the door a cloud burst. Back into Barbour and off to town in brilliant sunshine.
Collected glasses and on the walk back to the car got wet and cold, the wind was coming straight off the river and freezing your buttons off.
Forgot S&M drove to TOSPOTS instead, you can get under cover quickly but the sun was shining, a quick shop and back out got wet reaching the car. Now sitting in sunshine and it has warmed up away from the river. I give up.

There's  sunshine today on Teesside
I feel more like going to the seaside
Than into the garden to work
Still the chores I must not shirk
So maybe I'll catch the next tide.

Brenda you never know till you have a go, don't think about it and never try to improve it it has to just pour out. On another forum I ran a poetry day for fun, cries of "I cannot do that" a couple of hours later the cant do's were filling the board.
Give it a go girl.
