It's been a decent day with sunshine ,Snoop..but we were forecast snow overnight tonight..It's a while since we saw Hailstones as heavy or as big as these..Hope you are able to plant your spuds soon..

Nice sunny day here but with a very cold north wind - needed hat and ear muffs in the garden!

Oh my goodness! We had nothing like this Sandra. It's hard to believe we live in the same town. We did have a quick, sharp, shower about that time but nothing on this scale. Hope you're keeping warm.

That's a shock to the plants Sandra. We did get a few short showers with sleety stuff in them and it was so cold but we did get quite a bit of sunshine too. There were a lot of really black heavy clouds on the horizon. I went into the garden and after 5 minutes I went back inside it was far too cold.

It wasn't too bad during the day,Stera,as it was sunny with only a light breeze..and I did a bit of tidying up in our Daughters garden..without gloves too,which isn't the norm for me ..

I guess we are nearer the Pennine hills,than you are,Julia,so that will have made a difference ..they were so loud too..a slight thaw on the garden,at 7am this morning.,but all the roofs are still white and frozen..sun just out,so it should be gone soon ..:o)
..........
We had the threatening clouds too Linda..and you could tell by the colour it was going to be something drastic..luckily I don't have anything tender in the garden..I shall look later to see how the Tulips have fared ,and if they are still upright !

6 ish last night after sun and wet snow flurries a crack of thunder in a still garden then express train from the arctic threw wet snow at us and the tempersture dropped like a stone
Very cold overnight and everywhere now white with frost
Not as much snow settled as at Bloomers but my car looks crispy on top!

Gosh - nothing like that here on the NW coast! Lovely springlike weather yesterday and today... Hope yours warms up today.

I'm very happy for you to keep that white stuff up your way Sandra its cold but sunny here , we covered up last night preparing for a frosty night ,out doors that is not indoors LOL ....

Crikey.......we've been lucky in as much as we've had no snow or even hail this winter/spring, but, we seem to have had more rain than most winters/springs I can remember!
Been really beautiful today although chilly out of the sun!

Went to the GC just above Aldi in Milnsbridge this morning and we were quite surprised to see cars covered with hail stones and piles under the hedges...possible remnants from last night, or have you had another storm?

17 Apr, 2016

 

No thank you very much, you can keep all hail stones exactly where they are!

On Countryfile tonight, he warned of more chilly weather to come next weekend!!

Mind you, it does look quite pretty all covered in white!

Snap Sandra except we had snow - yesterday that is, it disappeared by the afternoon in the sunshine, today just brilliant sunshine so gardening resumed, Spring is wonderful indeed.....no two days the same :o)

We seem to have experienced all weathers yesterday Sandra, I looked for a rainbow but didn't see one here, however someone put a pic on Facebook last night and there was a beauty around teatime, all plants and seedlings got a little extra protection just to be on the safe side....Hard to believe but it was gorgeous today after the very heavy frost had gone, I sat on the patio making my paper pots for my runnerbeans and it was really warm, red sky tonight so hoping for sunshine again tomorrow.....

Thanks for all you comments,and glad to say it had all disappeared by yesterday afternoon,as we had a lovely sunny day..No damage to any plants,except for some moron who had done a 3 point turn into one of my Euonymous shrubs,because they couldn't be bothered to go a few yards further up to turn round in the cul de sac ! I've had to take off a few stems to try and balance it up..I wore my angry face for quite a while ! ..
Glad none of you were affected too badly either..and yes,Julia,that was from Saturday night,by the Colne Valley GC. you should have called in when you were so near..we were in all day..unusual,I know :o)

18 Apr, 2016

 

Yes that's the one Sandra...and I wouldn't have dreamed of calling in uninvited, it's not my way.

19 Apr, 2016

 

Next time,let me know if you are over this way,and if we are at home,it will give me chance to plump the cushions up ! ..ha.ha xx.

19 Apr, 2016

 

Blimey Sandra, I bet that was a surprise, not a good one either! That car driver was a lazy so-and-so wasn't he/she? We had a dry day today after a couple of rainy ones so I got the grass cut and edged, hooray!

19 Apr, 2016

 

It certainly was ,Shirley..I shall be keeping a look out to see if that person comes again,and tries to take it out altogether ..I might find another use for my Secateurs ! Lol
It's been a beautiful day here,so we went for a walk..Glad you were more productive than we were... Satisfying,isn't it ? x.

19 Apr, 2016

 

Ah, well we took a drive this morning to some Bluebell woods, very wet and muddy on the footpath/horse track but worth going.

20 Apr, 2016

 

hat sounds nice,Shirley..even if it was wet and muddy..It has been exceptional here,and very warm ,so we went for a long walk up on the hills ..well,we caught the bus up,and walked back :o) We were sat outside tonight till 7 pm...bliss :o) x

Makes you feel good eh? :o))
