Nearly departing.

Nearly departing.

Despite the weather improving earlier in the day,it has been nothing most of the time since only showers of sleet.Good to see some of the grass patches getting back to the normal colour again.Coming home though in the last few minutes i see snow showers have now returned.Going by reports the middle of the week or there abouts should improve things.Time will tell the story.I will make another effort tomorrow evening as early as possible to spend some more time looking through seeds in the garden shed and making sure they are in the correct order.I mark the date of opening on the front of each seed pkt after doing so and they will always be then kept in order for time of using.This weather will upset outdoor plans yet again for the first half of the week with any very early evening jobs in the vegetable garden,so no other garden plans except some time in the seed room tomorrow evening as of yet.

Rain here at the moment - which I hope will continue and that we don't get any more snow.

Thawing fast here all day John, snow disappearing fast. Raining for last hour or so.

But snow protected your plants in garden from frost,.I better like snow,not this wind and rain again...

Thank you all .

Thre snow does for sure Liga protect them from frost all right,it is when the thaw comes then it is bad enough,but add on the wind and rain is real hardship for gardening jobs.
