Note for Saturday 6th
Dull again
No rain today but dull and cloudy all day. Temperatures remain low even for February. Since the middle of December temperatures have been below normal. It’s just the degrees of coldness that have varied.
Note for Friday 5th
Wet and Dull
Rain in the morning followed by a dull and cloudy afternoon. We are back in another spell of gloomy winter weather.
Note for Thursday 4th
Dull and Misty
It was dull and misty all day to day. It was cold too for most of the day although temperatures did start to lift in the middle of the afternoon.
Wednesday’s snow still remained in the morning but gradually thawed through the day.

Snow flurries
Yesterdays snow flurries left us with a dusting of snow this morning.
From 2010 Weather 1
The glacier in the supermarket car park has still not melted completely. The latest dusting of snow didn’t do much to brighten up this black heap of snow.
From 2010 Weather 1
More snow flurries late afternoon gave us another dusting of snow as darkness fell.
Note for Tuesday 2nd
Dull and drizzly
A milder day after another overnight frost. It drizzled on and off for most of the day. We had a few snow flurries late afternoon.
I’ve placed a maximum minimum thermometer in my cold greenhouse to have better all round coverage of the conditions my plants have to cope with through the year.

  1. I'm amazed at the purple bloom amidst snow. Wow ...

  2. It's a tough little flower to survive the snow and frost
