Salix stay the colour we need.

Salix stay the colour we need.

Readings back to 9 deg in the greenhouse,but still above growing and that is what the gardeners need.Sun has not appeared here as yet this morning,but when it does long may it last.Tied up some of the potato stalks along  the walkway of the tunnel.Here is hoping that good weather will be here after 5 this evening.

Salix [Willow] adding some green colour now,to brighten up the bottom section along the walk,between them and the vegetable garden.

Looking good John. We should have a good burst of growth between this week and next. Good for the weeds too though with the damp warm weather on the way.

Your willow looks lovely, its great to see so much green in the garden after the harsh Winter we had.

Thanks Liam.Hope your words will be true about the good burst of growth.Raining here from just after app 6.30 this evening and the slugs along with the weeds are loving it.

I hoped similar to yourself about the sun on return home this evening Una,but in the last few minutes the ship had to be abandoned with outdoor work.Rain pays a visit.

Thanks Gismo.It sure is great to see so much green in the gardens.Weather left its mark for all the gardeners,but we will recover and get the better of it some day.
