Almost a white blanket.

Almost a white blanket.

Almost impossible to do any outdoor gardening today so i decided to gather up a few pressies before it will be to late.Most of that end of things should be complete by around lunch time tomorrow.This evening we play for another turkey and santy might give me the lucky cards.Had a quick walk down the garden when i arrived home earlier and not even the slugs will make a snow man now the ground is gone so frozen.Time for an hour to start wrapping up the pressies and then on to the cards.

Thanks you all.

I did not get to win the turkey,but came second for €10 so not so bad after all.Maybe another time.One of the players is heading off to England tomorrow until mid January and will be able to collect a vegetable book for me i wanted.I may not have won the top prize with the turkey but the book will be worth 3 of them to me.

Much the same picture here today although foggy to. Ground is certainly frozen went to get leeks for soup, had hoped to have homegrown carrots on Christmas day but not a chance covered in snow and frozen solid.

This weather Cloncaw is winning again,but we will get the better of it.Pity that your plan for the carrots was upset.The weather is supposed to pick up a little at the weekend but that will be a little to far away for this special time of year.
