Well as seems to be the norm of late and for this time of year nothing has been going on down the allotment or in the garden.
The weather has warmed up slightly over the last couple of days and we managed to reach 5degrees at one point. Snow hasn't fallen from the sky since late Tuesday evening and because of the warmer temperatures although it settled it melted quickly and was gone by morning. However the rain comes more often and not and most mornings are met with frozen fog.
The gardens look damp and dirty and there still is no life in the hedgerows, however my Lily-of-the-valley is making a brave attempt and has started to show it's face but not any flowers as yet.
On the plus side I have finished knitting up the front of my jumper with a little (well actually quite a lot!!) of help from my Mum who kind of re-wrote a pattern that even to her educated eye made no sense...Just the sleeves to go now!
Haven't done any more crocheting as I am still waiting for the next installment of my magazine to arrive. I hired myself a book from the library on Tatting today though so I will have a look at that and see how I get on whilst I'm waiting for the weather to warm up.
I think spring is on it's way though, but I will believe it has really arrived once my crocuses have bloomed, it's nice to still have daylight at 5:30pm......now roll on summer!!!!
