I took the above photo earlier this week. The daffodils are out and it is spring. Or is it?
This is the photo I took this morning. It is actually not the first time I’ve woken up to snow in the last seven days. It’s also not the first time in my life that there has been snow this late in the year.
However, no gardeners I know are enthused by the weather at the moment. The snow comes and the snow goes. In between the ground is too soggy to dig and the wind has an icy bite.
The good news is that the bluebells have persevered throughout this seesawing and are adding colour, in addition to the daffodils. The broccoli also continues to be an interesting feature and the cold has made it very tender. I am sure the garlic must be loving it, too, and the rainbow chard does not appear to be suffering.
Snow is forecast for the rest of the weekend but we live in hope that the better weather is just around the corner. At least my indoor tomatoes are oblivious to the goings-on outside 🙂
