Cold Weather moves in
Well they warned us it was coming, and it did with vengeance. All over the garden…. Snow, icy winds and below freezing temperatures.
Less than a few days after the official first day of spring, we are effectively snowed in.
Its odd that this unwelcome weather has coincided with me fixing up a new ‘toy’ otherwise known as a Remote Weather Station.
I’ve been looking into getting one for a while, a chap at work has one, he recommended looking at Maplins, and that’s where I bought mine from… 50% off, so good timing by me.
In place and so far so good..
So we woke up to this yesterday, and it was added to overnight.
So faced with this weather, everything I had planned to tackle in the garden and greenhouse has ground to a halt, all I can do is watch the display pad on my weather station saying how cold and windy it is.
My Witch Hazel has been flowering for over 2 months now, I just hope it manages to put on lots of growth this coming growing season as its always looked a bit underwhelming.
My wildlife pond is worryingly covered with snow and Ice, and only a week ago it was heaving with frisky frogs and spawn, I hope they are ok wherever they have gone at the moment.
I’ve got loads of packets of flower seeds waiting to be sown, but i’m not even going to start with the weather like this.
My Fritillaria Michailovski is getting going in the greenhouse, whereas everything else is just sitting out the cold.
Freddy my Cat is not impressed and after 20 seconds outside was not having any of it.
There’s nothing to do with the weather like this, except wait for a thaw, and perhaps a bit of silliness.
At least I can keep buying seeds, come Easter time I hope I’m up to my ears in seedlings.
Keep warm, hope for a thaw soon.
oooo fancy weather station. I have a digital one but it just does temp, humidity and ice/frost.
I do like your fritillaria. Desperate to be sowing here too
Gaaaah! Make it stop, make it stop!
You are so fortunate to have a greenhouse to give you a jump on spring.
