Good Morning Everyone,
Its grey and it feels colder than it has just lately , heading to Winter again in Brackley?

Morning all, morning Mick!

It is definitely colder in North Leicestershire but not too dull.

I'm having an admin day today as we more or less finished the garden yesterday. And I'm going to make a chili.

Have a good day everyone.

Good morning. It's grey in Lancashire too mick and raining. The weekend was lovely though so mustn't grumble.
A walk with WI this morning (waterproof on) and a visit to Mum this afternoon.
Hope everyone has a good day.

Good weather for a chilli kitty, might pinch your idea.

Morning All

You're up early Mick! DH is stirring upstairs as well as he wants to replant a hole in our hedge and bank before the forecast rain arrives here after lunch. (Privet killed by honeyfungus) I think he may be too late as its raining now! Still we had a lovely day yesterday on the river in sunshine most of the time. I do love our weather forecasters!

Good morning all,
Sunshine here this morning. We plan to take DGD into town this morning to see the buses, (her first love) before the rain comes. It also breaks up our day, as she now wants to walk everywhere, some places more suitable than others! Have a good Monday

Morning all.
Blue sky and fluffy clouds in Kent. Not been outside yet but temp. seems ok.
Taking H to garden job then trying to decide what to pack for next weekend. Thermals or T-shirts ??

Morning everyone. It's grey and cloudy here today. Feels a bit chillier, and we've had snow showers forecast for tomorrow and/or Wednesday. Brr!! Supposed to warm up again towards the end of the week. 😊

Good morning all from gloriously sunny Torquay. What a beautiful early morning to be up and about - even the birds are singing non stop! I am just off to do an early morning supermarket shop. My husband had his pacemaker fitted on Friday and already feels incredibly better - if not still a little tired. A gentle walk on the seafront after lunch - can't beat fresh sea air! Enjoy your day!

Good morning from sunny Colchester, although there is the odd black cloud passing now and then.
Please keep the rain there until this afternoon nfk as we have Walking Netball outside since they took the Winter cover off of the courts.

Good morning to you all, it is a glorious morning here too, not sure of the temperature outside though. I have another pile of ironing to do, and my hip replacement in November is beginning to give me grief - it didn't before the fall! Will phone the doctor see what he has to say. Son to lunch yesterday, so no vegetables left to fry up for today. Enjoy your days.
P.S. Nfk How do you replant a hole?smile

Tippy22 Mon 24-Apr-17 08:15:49

Another grey day here but hopefully it will brighten this afternoon as it did yesterday. Enjoy your day everyone.

Greyduster Mon 24-Apr-17 08:21:51

Good morning Michael and all GNs. Maple has saved me having to look out of the window this morning 😊. I have some shopping to do this morning, and then a pile of ironing to tackle. What fun! Enjoy yours, folks!

Good morning all. I am still in my dressing gown. I just have to get into the garden today to plant my new aquisitions which really need to be in ground ASAP. It will have to be done come rain or shine today.

I am out and about the rest of the week. Thermals needed this week according to the weather forecast.
I really cannot garden in my dressing gown. It would get too muddy.

Good morning everyone

Glorious sun again!! Just changed bedding so will get it out in this sun.

Today will feed the soft fruit. Last year, I rather stupidly didn't bother to put the labels on the newly planted raspberries. So I pruned them as needed but I seemed to have remembered wrongly as what I thought were the autumn raspberries are growing like summer and vice versa!! What an idiot. Not sure if I'll get any raspberries this year. Oh well that will teach me to label.

Must get the watering really going as we are away next week and it is forecast dry again as far as I can see. Still we are walking next week in my home county of Cornwall so will be pleasant with all the spring flowers.

Good morning, a cool 4 degrees after overnight rain. Yesterday was pleasant and had a coffee in the garden when we visited GC.
Getting into a routine, I bribe the GC and they do their music practice so I can hear how they are progressing.

Good morning from a dull Northamptonshire. Tried to rain but didn't come to much plus very high pollen count today . Enjoy Monday
