Rain Stopped Play would be a good sign at the moment. It's throwing it down while I write this post. There's not an hope of digging over the veg plot. I have seed potatoes chitting away on the unit in our front room. They are nice and warm and haven't got an inkling they will be getting planted in a couple of weeks, weather permitting.
I have plants like Bergenias, Hebes and Azaleas and Daffodils coming into flower and yesterday I decided to see how my Daffodils are doing (surviving) after all the wind an rain:
They are fine and there are even more flowers than before. How do they survive all the buffeting and rocking and rolling and all the rain?
Apparently the Romans introduced Daffodils to Blighty. Daffodils originate in Africa, Spain, Portugal and Morocco. We got our bulbs from Lidl.
