Yesterday was one of the coldest days for some time. As I looked out in the morning, there it was but didn't last very long. It remained quite cold. To day was different and I took some Photos of Hyacinths, not affected at all. To morrow I plan to go to the Country Market. We had none last Friday due to St. Patrick's Day. I should have Tomato plants Hydrangeas and Geraniums( hardy type). I think that the Yucca I mentioned will be right.

I have several Yuccas in the garden.They are hardy but if the flowering part appears at the wrong time we finish up without the flowers we might expect. This season the flower stalks came in the Autumn and so when the Winter came they were affected by the frost even though we had generally a mild Winter. One of them seems to be safe and despite the cold weather we should get about Tuesday night, I hope it will bloom.

What an early week we had regarding weather. However we have the typical St. Patrick's weather to day. It isn't too badn not raining so far. I was watching thr parade in Dublin, a bit disappointed with it, however I am looking forward to the All-Ireland Club finals, on TG4. The garden is looking good from the point of shrubs. Forsythia and Kerria japonica Plenafloria are looking better than ever and early too.

The temperature was high again to day. I would have liked to be out more but was busy at other matters. Like other days, the vent was openedin the greenhouse. The tomato plants are well advanced but i will wait a bit to transfer them to the greenhouse. I sold none at the Country Market last Friday, despite the plants being good and of course due to Friday this week being St. Patrick's Day I will have to wait another week. They are doing well inside the windows. I see that the temperature will be down to morrow and St. Patrick's Day but rising again.
