Why does it have to keep snowing?! I want to be out side gardening not indoors watching gardeners world! (even though it is a good programe)

    I agree. image  Had a to-do list for the weekend before OH went back to work. Needed some stone moving in the rockery for a small water feature which we've swapped from another border . The other one still needs electrical work doing as well so that's on hold . Still haven't divided the snowdrops - can't even see them at the moment image

    Just been potting on and playing with seeds indoors. Definitely not the same.

    Think I'm developing cabin fever. image

  • I feel the same another day stuck inside looking out the window seeing the jobs I need to do come on warmer weather where are youimage
  • Dromen over tuinieren en nog betere tuinplannen maken kan vandaag ook fijn zijn. Sinds jaren zag ik vanmorgen het programma weer eens, en de voorjaarskriebels begonnen meteen te werken. Dus ook ik kan niet wachten op hogere (tuin)temperaturen.

    Fijne dag, de zomer is toch onderweg....

    Tracy - I'm in West Lancs but we haven't had it as bad as some.

    This was yesterday.



  • I'm very very fortunate as I've had neither snow or rain since that weather front moved in,  all I've had is a biting cold easterly wind.

  • Lucky you verdin image

    I have just come in after spending about 45mins sowing some seeds and potting on a few other things and I absolutely can't feel the tips of my fingers and toes. I'm frozen to the bone!

    I'm at this minute sat trying to thaw out in the conservatory where it's lovely and warm as the sun in shining and the heating is on. Haven't even taken my coat off yet!  

    As my lovely old mum would's flippin taters out there image

    Not best pleased when the snow arrived here yesterday, thought we would escape it. No gardening done here at all.

    I had booked the day off work to get a few jobs done in the garden, but i'm stuck indoors glaring at a slow snow thaw.


    As a result the lawn is becoming a bog with all the melt water, i'm expecting rushes to start sprouting soon.  image

  • at least this crazy biting wind has dried the ground out a bit up here in newcastle.

    Although it's still pretty windy here and the sun is shining the snow is melting very slowly. I've just spent an hour or so clearing the snow out of the pots because everything was getting flattened under the weight. In all honesty it was quite pleasant and really quite warm. I'm amazed how quickly the flattened mini daffs, crocus etc have perked up now that they have the sun shining on them. image 

  • No snow here in Hampshire but it is bitterly cold. SInce there's not a lot I can do in the garden itself I've been cleaning/tidying/painting the inside of my shed. Out of the direct wind but I still keep getting freezing and have to come in for a cup of tea to warm me up!
