    Yes – it’s the same here – blowing a gale – heavy showers (some of hail) and it is very cold! We have a log fire going too! Normally I’m in sandals from April onwards – this year not a hope – socks and boots! If you find the sun – send it this way – please!!

    Unbeleivable….I thought it was only us in Canada that moaned about the weather. Glad we did not (could not) take our spring European trip this year.
    Oh…BTW…I think printed feedsacks were only used in North America .

      I thought so Jan – that makes them even more interesting to me. I have often wondered about getting some to make a mini quilt with.

    The poor tomato plants – we (by ‘we’ I mean ‘he’) put them out last weekend and they must be miserable and wishing we’d left them in the greenhouse.

    Snow and hail here in Leeds yesterday. I ve ditched growing anything vulnerable. Sticking to cabbages, carrots and broad beans. Great British Basics

      Hi Lucie. It’s true, you do have to adapt don’t you otherwise it’s so disappointing. We are very high up, in the foothills of the Pyrenees, and it has taken us a long time to find out what will or won’t survive. Literally, 5 minutes walk down the road, we see plants growing that won’t survive in our garden so it was a steep learning curve (no pun intended!) but I think we’ve learnt not to let our hearts rule our heads and waste money on unsuitable plants.
