    • Morning all.
      The mild air and cold,cold ground have made it very foggy here. I don't mind, I like to walk in the strange stillness and quiet of a good thick fog.
      Location - Leicestershire - Chisit-land
      Endless wonder.

        • Morning all, the snow is slowly melting here, perhaps a good thing it might reduce any flooding, still cold out there though, take care all and enjoy the day.
          If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

            No, just the ones in our valley. It's notoriously cold down here in comparison with the rest of our district. Has its advantages though: cool at night in summer. Does make it very difficult to keep trees down here. We've had a lot of tree deaths due to cold and wet. You'll all think me disgraceful but I'm actually thinking of having a couple of olive and almond trees uprooted higher up so I can put some fruit trees in. In my defence, the locals would think it a good idea.

            Started off bright here, but clouds are sweeping in. Feels like it's going to be a cold day. Would help if I shut the door, mind.

            Hope you all have a lovely day.
            Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

              All our snow has been rained away!....I’m actually rather pleased now to see the lawns ( which very much need cutting!)
              I’ve spotted a small clump of snowdrops and primroses I hadn’t seen before the snow, so that’s lovely!

              I love the muffled sound of fog too MH. We don’t seem to get it here- mostly morning mist from the valley.

              Remember the smog from childhood days? Not so much for me but OH lived in a more industrial area as a nipper and he remembers going to school in thick yellow smog.
              My Granny used to have to wash her net curtains by hand every week to wash the soot out of them.
              Thank goodness those days are gone!

              • Much, much warmer here today, the sun keeps breaking through and the bitter wind isn't trying to bite my face off. The frozen ground has started to defrost and is now a mud bath on the surface.

                    • Interesting the grandparent name thing. I’m nana (surname) to all my grandchildren and my two great grandchildren, usually shortened to Nan. My daughter has chosen to be called grandma. To be honest I find this very aging especially as she is a very beautiful woman who doesn’t look her age.

                      Today has been a lot warmer and I’ve had the back door open for about 4 hours so the dogs could go out and play.

                      • Oh yes, and almond blossom. I was over at my daughters last weekend (they’ve just moved in) and they asked me to identify plants. They have an “app” that does this but it came up with too many alternatives. It’s an almond. I know it’s an almond. My daughter’s oh isn’t going to believe me until it produces nuts.

                        • OK...so I did eventually end up in the kitchen as I wasn’t really needed much on the camper.
                          Special request was lemon cake, blackcurrant cake, coco and chocolate slab and crystallised ginger buns.
                          One dozen eggs later..... I still have 4 dozen to go!...ha ha ha!
                          I do still fancy trying your cake Bren , espesh as I found a recipe using a dozen egg yolks rather than a dozen eggs. Boy, I bet that is rich!

                          oh...and still no baby!
                          I suggested my daughter tells everyone her due date is in another two weeks to stop peeps from asking!
