Another cold start, scraping off OH's car, but promising to be dry....

No frost this morning, dry and dull so far.

Brilliant blue skies warmed my living room to 26C this morning, only to cloud over by 11am  -  it's back to heavy showers again already.

This is what my plot looks like, and what I have to cross to get to it. You do get used to it, it happens every few years. It'f fine in winter, you'd be surprised at what will happily stand with wet feet if it isn't actively growing.

Cold with snow flurries here today, but not enough to get excited about... lot of surface water still.

Great looking start today  :sunny:
Am going to check the olives and other tender plants a -5 to-10 C predicted over the next few nights and fleece where possible.  :wave:

Yesterday the icy wind was horrible, trees looked like a hurricane was blowing  -  I feared for my bird feeder station where the feeders were swinging almost horizontally and overnight Torbay received a sprinkling of snow! The icy east wind continues to blow but at least it's brighter today and the temperature is slowly rising, it's currently + 1C. :happy7:

It was lovely today.  Blue sky and puffy clouds perhaps the odd grey one.  Sunshine lighting up the edges of the clouds.  It looked lovely.
Then the odd snow flake and a few dog walkers scutterling by.
It was very cold out.  Thank goodness for central heating.

Another bright but cold start, cold overnight as expected. Got the Olives and pomegranates covered, but think we may have seen the last of the bananas, even in the large greenhouse!

When I used to grow bananas, I would cut down the stalk to about about 18 inches at a slant and throw an old blanket over them. Sometimes they made it back up again. But if they didn't, rootle about under ground and find the small shoots on the roots, pot them up and away you go again. Freezing again here, stiff washing on the line.

Morning ACE, I'm sure we will be able to salvage something from the bananas, they were getting to big anyway! Can't comment on the weather as it is still dark, but very cold... air so dry today that we didn't need to scrape the car off!

Well after a glorious and warm afternoon yesterday it is shaping up to be another warm and dry Spring day here. Isn't it great to get up in the light!

Only half of that, and a chill wind, another month or so to wait here!

I think we will have to ask the Global Moderator to ban BarriedaleNick from this thread ...

Doing quite well here in Torbay, 15C after a 12C night. Sunny spells but still windy.
