  1. Not seen a single ladybird here HC. Have seen a big fat hare, a brace of pheasants and several anthocharis cardamines - beauties.
  2. Up to 18.9°C and car aircon in full working order!
  3. Took my wee puppy, Fingal, on his first ever walk outside of our garden earlier. Tweed running !ow, forest very dry. And here he is earlier in the week:
  4. Between -2 and -4°C every morning since Tuesday. Proper frosty. Beautiful daytimes.
  5. I dislike anything that comes with a temperature greater than 19°C.
  6. Those Arctic ice stats are worrying.

      Very much so! The extent in particular is nose diving!

  7. Dreich! Today is the very definition of the word: https://www.google.com/search?q=dreich&oq=dreich&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l7.4126j0j4&sourceid=silk&ie=UTF-8
  8. Just to round-off what's been a quite wintry week here's a shot down the Tweed Valley at dusk
  9. If you want to post again C I can delete the two above? Snowy start at 6.30am then tremendous hail in north Edinburgh around midday. The archetypal April disturbed day.
  10. Snow line down the A702 and A701 at 300m this evening.
  11. Slight covering at 6am and snow billowing down. Puppy was not happy going outside to do business and cat ran in disgusted. Roads across western Borders black but at height by Skirling/Kirkdean it was a winter wonderland - I love frosted pine trees sprinkled in icing sugar
  12. Hills above Tweedsmuir up over the Beef Tubs snowy this evening. Nothing lying down to my elevation yet other than flurries.
  13. How's the soil moisture doing by you @Northernlights ? Absolutely waterlogged here now....
  14. Woke up at 10am to green. Now 6.8/6°C. That is all.
  15. Wintry weekend coming up. Maybe the last blast before spring proper...

      You all stocked up?!

      I have packets of bread mix ready...

      That's cheating!

  16. I have ordered an extra six beers for delivery tomorrow - just in case.
  17. Very heavy when it comes and it's been coming very often. Upper Tweed valley was flooded into many fields either side of the river valley on Tuesday after the storm and lots of snow melt. Quite a sight when there's standing water across hundreds of acres. Saturday forecast - snow all day, max 1C and accumulations of 13.5cm according to xc. We shall see...
  18. 0.4°C and heavy snow for !last hour. Everything lovely and covered, even between the cottage and garage that's basically a quagmire. Best snow of the winter (in spring!). Morning gonna be interesting.
  19. Temp up to 2.1/1.9°C now after a good inch of lying snow. Still coming down very heavily in showers and valley completely disappears in a fog of blowing snow, but blue sky between. Wish I had the forward planning of @mardatha and @snowyqueen to get the panic buying into the cupboard as now I have to go to the supermarket.
  20. Had a couple of beefy snow showers here during the afternoon. Laid very temporarily on grass. Chickens and cat unhappy.
  21. Temp says 4.6°C but blimey it's chuffing cold out there. Shovels ready for Sunday....
  22. Blowing a hoolie up the valley here with a 40mph straight northerly. Feels absolutely freezing out there at 6/5C
