I’m in shock really ! They predicted snow for yesterday and we had a lot of snow yesterday but it melted right away, so no problem. This morning I opened my curtains and look what I saw !!!!!
SHOCK !!! HORROR !!!
EVEN MY CACTI ARE IN SHOCK !!! CAN YOU SEE THE LOOK ON THEIR FACES ?
AND LOOK AT MY BRAVE LITTLE DAFFS !!!
I had so many plans for the day, I thought I could work in the greenhouse, do a bit of planting and sowing there and a bit of repotting…..all dawn the drain now !the way to my greenhouse is too dangerous with the snow so I am not going to risk it.
Can anyone tell me when this is going to stop ???? I want SPRING !!!!!!
PS: I just read in the newspaper that it was 60 years ago we had this much snow at the end of March !
Happy SUNday all !!!!
We had snow and artic temperatures this week, even during the day ! Although we get signs Spring is getting closer. Normally my Amelanchier is in bloom the 1st of April but not this year, the buds are becomming bigger but they have to become a lot bigger before it’ll start blooming, first you get the flowers and together you can see tiny leafs unfolding and by the time the flowers fade (after about 10 days) the leafs are all there. Whilst in bloom it is covered with buzzing bee’s and bumblebee’s having a ball ! Soon after the flowers the tiney fruits are there, at first green, later red and then the birds are having a ball feasting on the ripe berries.
HERE YOU CAN SEE THE BUDS, THEY ARE BIGGER THAN IN WINTER BUT THEY HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO BEFORE THEY’LL BE BIG ENOUGH TO BLOOM
As there is nothing I can do outside I started to repot my cacti and succulents in the house, the sun is shining and the light is bright so my cacti and succulents love it after a long grey and dark Winter, and some show signs of growth.
Have a great day and enjoy your garden if you can ! Thanks for stopping by !
This is the first sunny day we’ve had this year, it’s 9 C° but it is cold cos of an easterly wind but behind the windows it is warm, this feels soooooo good !!! It is only for a couple of days but I intend to enjoy every minute of it ! I want to start sowing in the greenhouse, of course only things that can stand a bit of frost cos my greenhouse has no heating (yet), for the first time this ear the automatic window openers opened the windows ! At the moment all my pots with succulents are in there to protect them from the rain and they have done well this Winter, they are looking good.
I took a few pictures of my indoor plants who are sunbathing and enjoying it !
I THINK THEY ARE ALL SMILING AT THE MOMENT !
IF YOU LISTEN CAREFULLY YOU CAN HEAR THEM SCREAM OF JOY !
Have a great Spring !
We have snow at the moment, it is magic but I don’t like it as it brings a lot of problems to everyone and my heart bleeds for my poor plants !
I covered my fig tree, hoping it will help to protect it a bit, last Winter we had some horrible cold Winter and my fig tree suffered a lot, it was not untill mid July that it was covered again in leafs where as after a normal Winter it is covered in leafs in April ! I didn’t get ripe figs either last year, the year before that I got heaps and heaps.
HERE YOU CAN SEE MY FIG TREE ON THE LEFT IN THE BACK, COVERED WITH SPECIAL CLOTH,I USED SEVERAL LAYERS OF THE CLOTH, YOU CAN ALSO SEE MY GARDEN TABLE WITH THE PUMPKIN COVERED IN SNOW, THE PUMPKIN IS STILL LOOKING GOOD SO I DIDN’T HAVE THE HEART TO THROW IT AWAY YET
ANOTHER GARDEN TABLE, THE ONE I USE FOR MY SUCCULENTS BUT THEY ARE IN THE GREENHOUSE NOW, NOT BECAUSE THEY CAN’T STAND THE COLD BUT WE HAVE BEEN HAVING REALLY WET WETHER FOR A LONG TIME AND THE WET IN COMBINATION WITH THE COLD COULD KILL THEM
Have a great day all and thanks for stopping by !
