We want sunshine..

We want sunshine..

Very cold and wet today with plenty of wind.The weather is really attacking with the bad side of it.Despite the roads being wet,they still are in a severe state with frozen ice in places.This evening i ran down with the flash lamp to check the reading in the garden tunnel and that was at -1.The outdoor reading is alongside it almost at just under 0 degrees.Last night i brought in some seed as planned from the garden shed and decided then to take in the water sprayer for the seed room and give it a good wash down with the help of the bathroom.The small mister will not be used again until needed when more young seedlings appear at a later stage.With water supplies very low in some areas according to the six one news and more snow returning to some areas also,how will the weather effect us next.One thing for sure though,not with a burst of heat and a blue sky that is badly needed.[we hope soon]

We had another load of snow last night, thought the gutters would come down.  Couldn't get car out drive this morning but saying all that I'm hopeful that I will have a green garden this weekend to walk round.  There may even be a bit of sunshine.  Fingers, arms legs crossed

We need that sun Fraoch.

We seem to be finished with the snow here Una,[all going well] and things start to look back to normal.Should you have to much of the sunshine at the weekend can you send some on here.
