A burst of sunshine :o)) Just what's needed today :o)

yes Hywel - weather at last nice here - although looked at pressure maps - more easterly winds coming - we here are in for more snow - so bang goes my bulbs now :(

15 Feb, 2013


More snow ! :o((( I hope not.

15 Feb, 2013


if pressure patterns go as they look - next weekend 23rd- 24th Feb could be quite bad for eastern parts - cold for all - paid to get a run of the pressure systems for 12 days - they'd better be right lol - or maybe be best if they move on this occasion

Hopefully Hywel - at least we are into Mid Feb now - and it was so nice being out in garden in light at 5PM :)))))

Yes ... I feel better now the days are longer. I wish they'd put the clocks forward now, instead of lingering until April. It's light enough in the mornings aswell now.

beautiful colour, i love roses:-)

16 Feb, 2013


indeed Hywel - I wish they'd move the clock an hour now then just leave them be - why they feel they have to move time back in winter to shorten nights further !!

Thank you SB :)))

16 Feb, 2013


I agree with you Paul ...
