Sun,the garden needs you.

Sun,the garden needs you.

After the visitors left earlier this evening i took a quick dash down to look at the garden in the frosty air.Improved a little earlier in the day but back to very cold again.All going well in the morning i hope to look through some more seed now that we are in the New Year,and if allowed to spend some time in the vegetable garden.[weather permitting] Picture taken this evening at 4.30.

Glad you were able to have your visitors. Very uncertain weather for travelling.

Thank you Myrtle.To chat about old times with family members,banishes the poor weather we have here at this time,and brings back the glorious days.

Good you got together, to be really cold tonight.

It's really the weather for staying in. Looking through seeds is a good idea. I thought we were okay and didn't need to venture out but it seems that we're almost out of toilet roll!!! Oh calamity!

Everyone is home safe and well thanks,Jacinta.[phone call about 10 min ago]

We had a great chat here Fran thanks.Just as they departed app 3 o clock it was like a skating ring with everyone.

It is for sure Rachel.At least the weather cant defeat looking through the seeds, thanks.Your shopping will be a perfect starter for sowing the broad beans when the time comes.
