I can hear the announcement over the echoey platform tannoy system, “BING BONG, We regret to announce that the UK service to Spring arriving in March, has been delayed due to snow on the line. We apologise for any disruption this may cause”.
Spring has definitely taken a break and I’ve taken one along with it, which is why I’ve not written on here for some time. I was also preoccupied with several other things, one of them being procrastination and lazyness. Last week we dipped back into winter with several parts of the country (including us) getting a dumping of snow and being inflicted with freezing temperatures and winds. This week has marginally improved but it still is cold, windy and now very wet.
There was supposed to be a beautiful picture of daffodils in the lawn for the March GBBD but I’m not exposing my camera to that rain. The forecast for the coming week is yet more miserable grey weather.
Looking back at what I got up to around this time last year; I was dealing with a very large pile of manure, having to get up early most mornings to apply it to the garden before work. I am very thankful there’s nothing like that to do right now as I don’t fancy working through buckets of sodden manure on saturated ground – especially before leaving for work.
I would like to get on and finish tidying the garden and above all, take the greenhouses down, but with temperatures set to fall again, it could be April before I’m confident that sheltering plants wont freeze and drown.
Meanwhile the rain continues.
