FINALLY SUNSHINE

And what does that mean?.......well the weather man has just forecast FROST!!! again and said that we have been colder than Lapland and Siberia. Last night I didn't take it too seriously as it was pouring with rain and I felt the cloud cover would keep the frost away. I did pop a couple of things under a cloche...... but the weather men were right......Now guess which pot of beans hadn't quite fitted under the cloche....those poor little seedlings on the left...................I wasn't going to caught out again tonight especially as the skies have cleared...so at the moment the garden looks like this.......and as for me....well the gas fires on.......dinners cooked......
and all hatches are well and truly battoned!

It's true about the former USSR: I got a message from LITHUANIA saying it's been dead HOT out there!

I'll check out the photos tomorrow when I've got more time (2 mins left as I speak!!) but thanks for the tip!

Hi Ruth ~~ I am so sorry you are having these late frosts and so much rain. Your plants look really nice and it must warm up there soon.
Thanks for your visit and I am glad you enjoyed the "One Flaw in Women"
Take care Ruth, wishing you some warmer weather. Love, Merle.

(Needless to say first thing I notice is the dinner - looks fab!) Luckily no frost down here, beans are already at the top of their poles and flowers abound, so fingers crossed that the frost has passed us by.... Rain.... now that's another matter (the chickens think they're ducks!)

So sorry your weather has been so strange lately! We, on the other hand, had a hot and summery long weekend for Memorial Day and now this week is perfect weather, high 70's, low 80's, low humidity. Please consider this to be a bit of sun and warmth in your inbox and try to transfer it to your garden! I missed the chance to do that in your previous post where you requested it!

We had to have our CH on again this last week too, but thankfully no frosts.
Hope the sun comes back soon to warm up our gardens. Is it March we're having now? We certainly didn't get March in March!!!
