    A chilly 7C last night, luckily I'd seen the forecast and moved lots of pots back inside the greenhouse - again! Only 12C now and grey, with a brisk NE breeze and with spits n spots of rain, so it doesn't feel very nice out there, even the cat agrees that it is an indoors day No playing on the allotment today then, I'm trying to resist putting the heating back on again

    Sorry don't fancy anything goat Here we're having tray-baked soddages, onions, tomatoes, peppers and potato wedges, as it's nice outside It's been sunny all day, and got hot after lunch as long as you sat out of the NWesterly breeze.

    Sunny and 16C here so far, at least that annoying cold wind has finally gone. Busy today but looking good for allotment visit tomorrow

    Don't know about the barbecue, as we were forecast sun today - but the sky looks dark and rainy to me. But what do I know, the MetO says it's sunny - I just look at what's there to see and tend to disagree Will this be a year with no proper summer weather?

    Sun is trying to break through now and temp up to 12C so I'm off to play on the allotment. Potato planting time has arrived at last, nearly 4 weeks later than normal for here!

    Sorry, but that's about as interesting as the weather Back to grey and miserable again here. Plenty of bees buzzing about but no flowers open for them. Sad really, they're having a bad enough time as it is, without the weather making things worse

    Cheers you up no end when the sun is shining and your joints stop aching Was a bit drizzly this morning but sun came at lunchtime and got up to 17C according to the local (at the end of my road) weather station.

    Any music that we don't personally like, we think of as bad music, doesn't mean we are right or that others have to agree with us. I don't care what music they are playing BUT whatever genre of music they choose, I shouldn't have to listen to it unless I want to - use the volume control FGS

    Wish I could say the same, tis cloudy here and the wind is getting up again, making it feel quite chilly. Not managed to get up to 10C yet, either

    Drizzle here this morning, the cat isn't Impressed at getting muddy feet again! The lawn is waterlogged, but even that's an improvement as yesterday it was completely underwater It's been around 6C all night and the forecast is for much the same all day as well *sigh* Fed up with grey skies, a bit of blue would be nice.....

    Much the same here, don't know if it's my age but when I went to get the paper - the 7.5C felt warm and humid rather than chilly

    Bright and sunny this morning, nice in the greenhouse away from that nagging cold wind. Nasty cold rain now with a 'feels like' of 3C - even feeling cooler indoors, so heating turned up a notch AGAIN *grump* Getting fed up with this yo-yoing between winter and spring, it's not doing the garden much good either, several of my larger shrubs have died

    Allotment plots are waterlogged in places and it seems there is a lot more rain to come Double drat! Got a climbing rose for the shed, some currant bushes a loganberry and a tayberry to plant as well. I've potted them all up for now, I don't think planting into sodden clay would do them much good. Not much chance of getting early peas and potatoes in this year, either. Roll on Spring
  15. Started the day just above freezing here and after lunch thin powder snow started, but it has now turned into big fat snowflakes falling heavily. Hopefully this will be the last of it - I'm fed up with cold now!
