IT'S SETTLED

We finally had some snow that settled last night, not enough to rush out with the sledge or make a snowman though. The weather forecast says that it may get a little warmer over the next few days (up to 5 or 6oC) so I don't think we will see any more for a while.
first settled snow this year
What we have is thawing quite quickly; it was another beautiful sunrise and the sun is at the moment streaming into our living room window and feels really warm on my face. Of course if you're OUTSIDE is still bitterly cold.
a beautiful start to the day
I read on Libby's post yesterday that she has now potted up her ginger and DATES. She has done so well to get the dates to germinate. I really hope she manages to keep them growing; I've never had any luck with them at all and it's going to be interesting to see her photos of them as they get bigger.

Tescos have made their delivery and luckily did have some ginger in stock so I'm going to have a go at growing that.

Come on ginger..GROWAs the idea of puting pieces in a bag of compost and keeping it in a warm place seems to work I am trying that. And the rest of the ginger?; well some has curry written all over it and the rest I'll freeze...I find it grates beautifully straight from the freezer.
Here's hopingFingers crossed I'll have some success.

Settle down with kitchen goodies and enjoy a warm and wonderful time inside while it is could out. And if the sun is shining in the windows, better yet.

Great pictures! I liked the snow picture. We don't get snow where I live.

It's nice to have the sun on one's face.
