In the last blog we were frozen, now we’re waterlogged! I know gardeners (and farmers) always moan about the weather but we really have had it all this winter/spring.
This photo I took yesterday walking my dog down by the river, a short way on we had to go “inland” as we couldn’t follow the river path any more due to the flooding.
On a brighter note, despite it all we will be at Pittville Pump rooms Sunday 18th March for the CHS Spring show. Do come along and support them , it starts 12:30pm.
Well it looks like the forecasters were right, what with the Beast and Emma (sounds like a Disney film) we have been virtually housebound for the last three days, seems like much longer. All the plants are covered with snow & those in the tunnels or greenhouse are frozen in their pots, it will be interesting to see which ones survive.
We’re due to attend Cheltenham Horticultural Society’s Spring Show two weeks tomorrow, fingers crossed that the snow melts & the temperature rises asap otherwise we’ll have nothing to sell .
On a cheerier note I’ve had Fieldfares and Redwings in my garden as well as my usual birds which is lovely.
