10th of February and the first dry calm day of the year

Well its a bonny day here, the first calm sunny one of the year. So I wandered round with the camera and captured the first colour of the year.

I'm off to take advantage of the nice day toodle pip.

February the depressing month

 Christmas  and New Year came and went January blew itself  out we’ve been hit by Storms Abigail, Barney, Clodagh, Desmond, Eva, Frank ,Gertrude and Storm Henry. It's been very very wet and by February I am depressed. 
It's almost impossible to get things done in the garden as everything turns to mud I haven't had any work and am fed up painting so today was a bit of a relief, the weather was pleasant and I got some jobs done. On my walk about there are daffodils out as well as snowdrops and the big Camelia bush is only a couple of weeks away from blooming too. 
I got a tree felled and chopped up and a trailer load of seaweed from the beach for my garden so I will put that on my raised beds tomorrow, planted garlic and some seeds in a propigator in the laundry and I,m not half as depressed as I was.

Roll on Springtime. I shall have to get back onto helpx soon and get some bodies to help out again made a big difference last year.
