Freezing here, with a howling gale as well.

Went into the garden for a spot of fresh air, poking around in the woodland, to see what might be starting to grow. The ominous groaning of the branches of the Beech trees soon made me move.

Just watched the last part of Wolf Hall, I wish there was more telly like that. What a fantastic performance by Mark Rylance.

Like the sound of the meat balls Dove, I am cooking a tuna stir fry and noodles, for when OH gets back from Pilates.

Morning all.

Spring my a###, snowing and bitterly cold here.

Very bad weekend, sport wise.

Hope you all have a good day.

Morning all.

Snowing here.

Just had a tree surgeon in to look at some of the damaged trees, from the Boxing day snow. I have done all the bits I can do, but some of the trees need to come down completely.

I have had some very bad experiences with tree surgeons in the past, and have also looked after some of the resulting damage that can happen to the surgeons themselves.

This bloke seemed very knowledgeable, and will make me some nice log piles, in the wilder parts of the garden.

Have a lovely day.

Afternoon all.

rare trip to gym this morning. Very embarrassing, new piece of equipment, a rolling staircase, and you guessed it I fell down them!!

Never mind only pride hurt, and a rather attractive girl came to ask whether I was all right.

Preparation starts now for the Cup Final, COYS.

Enjoy your days.

Well, the washing machine man turned up eventually, and could not fix it. What a wasted day, can't go into garden, when expecting people, as the house is hard to find, and there is no mobile reception in the garden.

Still waiting for car to arrive at the garage, so I can test drive it.

Get better soon to all the afflicted.

They are not hardy, so too early for unheated greenhouse, certainly at night, as DM says.

Morning all.

Heavy frost, but looks sunny. Had to scrape ice off car to go to SM.

Washing machine packed in, so lots of waiting around for them to come and hopefully fix it.

Hopefully get some more gardening done.

Afternoon all.

Cold, wet and windy [ and that's just me ]

Lots of window sill seeds starting to germinate, which is great, but no idea where I will find room for everything when I start pricking out.

when to cut back Fountain Grass?
