Today was not a day for brass monkeys or even pretty determined gardeners in sunny Laois! 

I ventured outside for a few minutes but didn't get inspired! Went shoppping instead but sadly not Garden shopping - and when I got home I was surprised to see that the little smattering of snow still hadn't melted!

and tomorrow doesn't get much better - "feels like" isn't getting above 2 degrees and actual not above 4 or 5 - and just to add to the misery rain/sleet too!

So where is our lovely Bridget hiding our Spring? Even my Daffodils are very reluctant to open!

The snow here was great fun for the kids who had a wonderful time before they went to school. But there was a brisk wind which would cut the face off you. It was a lovely sunny day though. And later when I went out walking the dogs as long as the wind was behind me it was quite pleasant. Not much happening weatherwise just yet I think and the garden is definitely not the place to be when its so raw! Lovely photos and particularly that second one of the rockery.....very nice!

No snow here to day. Not as cold i thought as yesterday. No gardening done but went to Dublin by train to have a job done on the eyes. I feel better now, eyes staying open more. Left about 9 a,m. and back in Carlow 2.3o p.m.

I don't think the weather in Waterford was as bad as the rest of the country. Today was very nice up until three o'clock when it became a little damp. Spent a lovely time gardening.

Wondered how I missed you Dick then realised I went yesterday! Cold here today as well Hazel. I did get out one day and scratched around but that was all. But if I do that often enough the garden will be cleaned eventually.

No snow here but very cold the last few days and we did have frost overnight.  Though I've done no gardening for a while, I did take a few photos early this afternoon when the weather brightened a little, which I'll post later.
