Weather Watch Wednesday...week 9 2010

Well Hi all....I know I'm a day late with this post but I figured you would all forgive me when I don't moan and groan about the weather all the way through it!!!

Well Thursday through Sunday which pretty much the sa
me as we've gotten used to so I won't mention them but then on Monday....BAM!!.... it was the start of a new month and I'm pretty sure that spring decided to come along with it!! I awoke to watery blue skies with the sun shining and we even manged to get up to 6degrees Celsius at one point. Now if you live in the tropics then you won't be amazed...but I am amazed and it's lifted my spirits no end. I still haven't been down to the allotment as I really don't have anything to do yet.

Even the crocuses are starting to bloom.

I was getting quite worried reading other peoples blogs and thinking I must be really far behind this year but when I checked my garden diary from last year I found that I didn't start until mid march and I had a lot of work to do before planting, so technically I am ahead of myself this year...yay me!!

I did however spend the whole day in the garden yesterday, just your general tidying and weeding and stuff but it is always such a long job after winter so I only got the front done...hopefully get started on the back this afternoon!! Needless to say I was quite tired last night but at the same time totally energized...I just love to get outside!!!! The garden still doesn't look beautiful but it's neat and the edges are trimmed.
my garden
Nice neat garden!

I really think Spring is here folks..HOORAY!!!!!!

On a slightly different note I would like to thank
allot of veg for their help on parsnips...if you're interested you can see the advice in the comments section of my previous post...or you could check out their blog.

Here's hoping you're all having better weather too!! :-)


  1. We woke up to snow again on Tuesday. It wasn't forcast either so it was a bit of a shock. Luckily it didn't stay for long. It's nice to be able to get back out in the garden again, and your front garden is looking nice and tidy, unlike mine.

  2. Like you I woke Monday to a glorious sky and fairly balmy temperatures, my crocuses are blooming too :) I have been doing a little everyday outside in the garden as well, will be posting about it all in a day or so time.

    I just hope the weather holds till the weekend as I want to visit the allotment on Sunday.

  3. Monday was a good day for us and we actually did some gardening too - today the crocises have actually opened!

  4. Oh my, I envy you. My garden site is still under 5 inches of snow :(. However, our temperature is getting warmer. I'm not looking forward to a very wet ground.

    Have a great week.

  5. It's good to see a place with no snow. Spring's arrival always brings a lot of energy with it. Our snow is beginning to melt, but our spring here is still about three weeks off. You have given another good sign of spring, even for those of us who still have snow on the ground.

  6. The last couple days haven't been too bad here but still a little chilly. It's coming though, before long I'll be able to get outside again. That sunshine is always the perfect remedy

  7. Glad to see that our prayer has been answered. Enjoy your new day of Spring Tanya :)

  8. Yes it seems that spring has sprung at last. Your garden is very neat. Mine is definitely NOT!!

  9. Sweet. I'm still waiting for the snow to melt ... melt ... melt ...


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
