Hot here in Wales with one heavy but quick shower. Quite humid too. The weeds are loving it!

Cooler now, but still clear and bright,,, didn't get any rain over the weekend, although we heard the thunder storms.

No rain in NE Hampshire either, storms were away to the North (Heathrow) .Temperature soaring to 9deg C, from an overnight low of -3. Bright and beautiful. One more coffee and out I go!

Well I've got what was required, 15mm so far, but have had to wait a week to get it.Bit like the post at the moment. Looks as if its going to remain coolish, that will let the rain just soak in nicely. Planting in earnest as the frost risk recedes. Just got to hope theres not a sting in the tail!

Wild, wet and windy 86mph. I bet the poly is now a paraglider. Not going to find out soon, you can tell why they call them souwesters.

Fingers crossed for all polytunnels through this wild night. Think my cover is five years old. Hoping for another year or two but ......?

Cold, cold, cold, the last time I felt this cold was up on the Artic patrols. My fingers are numb and I am indoors dressed like Nanook of the north. Not going to the plot this morning, I'll use some of the freezer reserves if I can get it to thaw out.

About two-three inches of the white stuff here near Oxford. I think I'll pass on visiting the allotment today - luckily I'm mostly doing half-days at work at the mo, and I don't need a very big diversion to stop  off on the way home.

Only started here about an hour ago, but we have already lost the road surface. My lad is in Botley, but he said it all had melted by mid-day. Hope your allotments aren't those we see when we walk into Oxford... they seem to be regularly flooded!

No snow here, but I can see the white hills over on the north island.
