Although the temperature has dropped it has not gone below zero. This is good news as the seedlings are still happy. It has just been wet. All sorts of wet from drizzle to downpours. Today for example it was mizzle in the morning, we had lunch in the sun on the front terrace. and then we were coppicing this afternoon and burning the scrub and it started raining. That is the second day on the trot that rain has stopped outdoor play. I am just pleased that I didn’t bother to water the plants in that I moved this morning. A Forsythia and a couple of red dogwoods are now in the front bed below the retaining wall. They are only a few centimeters tall but will grow into healthy shrubs (hopefully) courtesy of Keith Walker from Chamonix. Thanks Keith.
The other up side of mixed weather is the food. With less opportunity to get outdoor stuff done we spend more time looking at recipes and creating lovely meals. Thoroughly enjoying the Tray bake book and the Bosh book and playing with different breads.
Next up is to teach Breezy some rope tricks.
