Daily walking regime in any weather


By Scotkat


Yesterday was so wonderful could have walked for miles.

And just back but it’s frosty and 1deg Greenhouses doors frozen solid.

Bulbs starting to show and birds chirping again .

And stunning blue sky.

Won’t be long till back in garden and biking.

All my fuchsias are growing great in conservatory never put any in Greenhouse so think this year will have no loss.

Shall soon be taking cuttings again.

Now I left so many fuchsias up at Glamis I wonder how they are.

My view from lounge is to the wonderful hills just a perfect view.

Next time will take camera.

Sounds lovely Scotkat, the weather here too is lovely, if a little breezy. Dry and sunny. My fuchsias are still outside but OK. Very little frost so far this year. About 3 times so far. I expect a few Goyers are in the water and my regards to them in their distress.

Hi Kath, the fucshias you sent me are doing well in the greenhouse, with a bit of heat, looking forward to seeing them in full bloom later in the year, I have to keep pinching out the buds on them, they seem to be a really vigorous variety,{ Mandarin cream}, Derek.

The weather sounds very bracing with you SK. I always over winter as many of my fuchsias as possible each year, in a unheated greenhouse. I also take cuttings as insurance against any losses. To date all are doing well.

Great Derek yes it's a wonderful and beautiful fuchsia good luck growing it.

Waddy bit bracing today but wonderful but this is 2nd yr I lost all my fuchsias in an unheated greenhouse so decided 2013 all fuchsias came indoors to conservatory

Your walks always sound wonderful - I can almost smell the fresh air. My fuchsias are mostly in the doldrums now having an enforced rest, but Paul Jane doesn't want to stop flowering in spite of not having been watered for about a month! It has been so nice to see some blue sky today for a change.
