It’s been a variable week, weatherwise. We had a couple of nice days at the start but it’s been bitterly cold, with a breath-taking easterly wind, at the end. Damp, dreich. Only the snowdrops and daffodils show that it’s spring.

However, I started sowing some seeds on heat – tomatoes, sweet peppers, - and some in the greenhouse - some herbs, sweet peas, calendula and candytuft.

Dan went off to Mike and Kate’s with the log splitter on Thursday. Boys and toys.

M was here Friday, so Dan carried on with the apple tree pruning – almost finished – while M cut back the willow. It’s basket willow – it’s a shame it doesn’t have a home. We’re going to plant some along the drainage ditch.

And some kitten spam.
