    I suffer with Raynauds, so when I say I "suffer" in the cold,I mean it literally, not figuratively. 
    The pain has reduced me to tears .

    I am truly sorry @Hostafan1 and should not have made light of your situation.

    I saw what the condition can do as a neighbour of mine lived with his mother who suffered from Raynaud's for many years. He is credited locally with inventing some of the first heated gloves and footwear for her although he never had national acclaim. A lovely man who was very concerned to relieve her suffering and so never bothered to take out a patent.

    Fair breeze moving the branches of the trees, still glasshouse door open, so not that bad.

    Oh @herbaceous and @Logan , thanks so much, but there are plenty who suffer far more than I do.
    I met a fellow sufferer who had it constantly, not just during cold weather. She'd regularly sliced off the tops of her fingers when cutting veg as she had no sensation in the ends of her fingers at all.
    There's medication available , but I'd be on it all the time the temperature is lower than about 18C.

    We got the promised rain yesterday afternoon ... and hail and thunder and a gusty wind that blew the pots of cannas ets over and across the lawn ... my lovely OH dashed out there  and got soaked rescuing them 😍

    Now it’s clear, bright and calm ... but it’s the coolest morning we’ve had in a very long time ... feels about 10C ish.

    Lashed it down here too yesterday Dove and overnight. Lovely fresh smell this morning, blue sky, sun is shining but I doubt I'll be opening the greenhouse. Looks like a lovely day  :)
