stone circle & greenhouse in snow

We did much wrestling with plastic membrane today. When the wind gets under that stuff, it just rips out the pegs and takes off! I re-attached the piece on the long border and hubby dealt with the piece on the ditch at the front - several times!

Hubby also emptied the compost on the 3 veg beds he recently weeded and started off new compost from the hen house leavings. This was my cue to start some hedge work.

But the weather was too awful and before long the hail was falling and I whimped out back inside. Oh well. I took a few final photos for my March 2010 album.

Can't wait to see that stone circle during the summer with planting all around it.

Me too, Jacinta. You'd swear there was nothing there.

Some greenhouse, Rachel. You mentioned the fact that mine is heated but mine has only four bays compared with 10 for yours.

Fab greenhouse, love the organisation in it and the plants.

Cost would be a real issue in heating my greenhouse, Dick. The roof does leak in places too so an electric heater isn't really an option.

Thanks, Ros. The greenhouse is pretty empty at the minute but that will chance radically in the next month.

Indoors, true, but not beaten.
