Snap Stephen!
I was looking out into the garden this morning watching a yellow brimstone butterfly, a tortoiseshell one and several bumble bees fluttering around the open crocus blooms and heather around my patio and thinking the same thing!
However I can,t help wondering if we will pay for all this early sunshine further down the road ! :(

What forecast? Prospects here are for daytime temperatures to be in double figures or not much below well into March.

I've run the snow forecast to earth. As I expected it's the usual "snowmageddon" from the Express. The met office forecasts something wet and mild.

Actually, the weather forecast on Netweather for our area for this Saturday and Sunday is for sleet and snow ....... (unless they are still working on last year?)

Gusty wind & rain down this way for the weekend apparently but conflicting (but basic agreement between TV & phone) on whether rain or showers, both agree on the gusts. Well it was great while it lasted & I managed to do most of the prep stuff I would have been still tackling in April but sat on my hands & only planted some broad beans & sowed some sacrificial peas to feed the mice on the plot.:) (Back up wee plants doing well in the greenhouse).

Got some extremely good news, had my PSA test result today and it has come back at 0.1, so no need for any Radiotherapy... :)
