A white Wednesday.

Snow returns.

Snow returns.

Still no change with the bad weather.Over the last few days the snow showers have been with us.This morning a little different with some very heavy falls.The greenhouse gave a reading of -3 just after 7 am and has not improved to much while checking in the last hour or so.I had hoped to spend some time looking through some seeds this evening,but off to another day with the garden shed also at-3 in the last few minutes.On the bright side the stretch is coming on the evenings,and with a look at the sky earlier,some of it was blue with the touches of sunshine.Spring is on the way back.Time for some digging soon.

Very well said John, yea strech is showing. My plans for working on the area at the back of the shed, will be put off for a while.

John lovely to think it is only around the corner  Spring I mean, and the snow will be melted and all our bulbs will be in flower take a break and read a book if you can not get any jobs done.

Everything just looks so clean and bright. Great to see the stretch in the evenings now, albeit a small stretch.

That snow looks pretty thick. Sun shone here but freezing all day. Tiny flurry of snow in the afternoon but not enough to lie.

that scene seems alien to me cos we had only the smallest bit of snow here....

Thank you all.Sorry about the late reply.Wednesday night is our local cards game between 8 and 10.The only thing i won for the night though,was some of the white blanket of snow on the way home.Another time maybe.

Everywhere seems to be affected in different ways by snow but the freezing cold has us all in it's grip. The feature in the magazine was great as it gave an all round view of not just veg but also your flowers you must be really delighted with how your garden came across.

It looks like shocking dangerous roads are on the cards for you tomorrow, John, with all that snow and down at -3.  Mind yourself.

Johnplotman Johnplotman 07 January 2010 19:32:00

The weather is really making its mark now with this severe spell Cloncaw.Yes i was delighted [thanks] all came out well with the magazine.

Johnplotman Johnplotman 07 January 2010 19:38:17

That is for sure Mairin [thanks].Some of the roads this evening cannot be approached,especially in the last hour or there abouts.We have had a dangerous spell of freezing fog and down at -6.
