Lovely day here in London too - cold but bright and clear.  Time to do some tidying up in the garden - the plot is still a bit slippery to do much.

Another brilliant blue sky.. dry start to the day, not as cold, no frost to scrape off OH's car this morning.

A bright and dry weekend... wasted (from a gardening point of view) spent the weekend driving around the North of England gathering relatives for the funeral. No doubt the first named storm currently battering Western Ireland will land here soon and keep me off the lotties for the rest of the week.

A really miserable day today.. windy and rain all day, driving my sister and her husband back to Wigan and home again... but at least it was a glorious day yesterday for the funeral.

A reasonably good day to be out on the lottie... tidied up some of the greenhouses, mainly to make room to "paint" the pallet toppers I have had in drying out ready for filling with the spent compost ready for the early roots...
Ha a celebratory beer in the big greenhouse.. and of course some harvesting.. parsnips, leeks, sprouts celeriac, swede, carrots... yum!

Tidying up shed, boring.  No beer or wine either, which is just as well as it is so slippery underfoot.   :BangHead:

Not light enough to assess yet... OH has left me a lot of non-gardening jobs but if the sun shines who knows...

Got out this afternoon for a couple of hours, mainly to tidy up from our "private" firework display and some trees and weeds that a tenant had cut down to tidy his neglected plot and left in the adjoining communal area....

Force 8 winds again. I still say these winds where not as strong until they started giving the storms their own names.

You have got a point there, because winds are stronger now than they have been, they started naming storm lows.  Doesn't make us feel any better about them though.   :BangHead:

calmed a bit this morning, but 85 mph last night. It shook the house a bit. Southerly so it should not be too bad at the plot which is protected by a tall copse.

Looks like a decent frost on the way. The really wet winter has flattened my rough dug plot and it is too wet to get it done again so the frost will not be breaking up the ground and getting rid of the critters this year.

Lovely cold crisp start to the day here in London - ice and frost everywhere but the sun is up now and the ice is sublimating and you can feel the heat of the sun.
I feel like I should plant something.
