Dinner,for the card players this evening..

More of the same.

More of the same.

Often wonder where to go in a case like this.One time to look up at the blue sky,that reminds me of summer,then to look at the ground,winter attacks in full force.

Yet again we have to put up with unwanted visits from snow and ice.The big ??? is for how long more.We have had enough of it up to now without more hold ups..

I had planned to spend time in the main flower bed,to remove some of the small tubs.That will go,yet again on hold until another day.Some of the very tiny 360 holder trays will be taken into the garden shed and prepared.They need a final washing.

Plans for any inside gardening are on hold later on,as the Christmas dinner takes place for the local card players,at eight this evening.Hard to know who will get to attend.Have to wait and see..........

Frustrating, I know, not being able to garden. But Im thinking that this weather will be doing a lot of the work for us. Remember the great results we had after last year?!  enjoy your Dinner and celebrations tonight!

Enjoy the night, and relax today, then we won't feel so guilty...........

Enjoy the dinner, John.We were lucky, our cards were Tues before the snow came back. On the other hand, we don't have a dinner. I'd better not suggest it in case I'd be elected to cook!
