Short Back & Sides For Tom.

All readings are taken from a sheltered location in our
garden and cover a 24 hour period starting at 6pm.
Low Temp: 2.0C
High Temp: 12.7C
Rainfall: 0.9mm
Strongest Gust of wind: 3.1 mph
Weather Today: Mostly bright but with a bitterly cold wind.

It seems that I'm not being allowed to upload a picture again tonight, this time it seems to be 'Blogger' that it the problem, it was only a picture of a grapevine anyway so its no great loss.
This weekend me and Tom are off walking again so we won't be around for a few days.
Today as everywhere is soaking after last nights rain I decided to spend the day transplanting and potting up. It seems to be a never ending job at the moment, I could spend all my time in the greenhouse are the moment there is so much to be done. Both the greenhouse and conservatory are bursting at the seams at the moment - I keep on finding room though. Its nice to see everything packed in though, much better than when I came here, there was about three half dead plants and the rest of the place was full of Willow Herb and other weeds which was a real shame.

I gave Tom a hair cut today, well his tail anyway. No matter how I try to comb it he manages to get it all knotted up so every so often I get the scissors out and give it a trim, its a good thing it's his tail and so can't see it or I don't think he would be speaking to me right now, I definately shouldn't give up my day job - not to do hair dressing anyway.
Well I think I'm going to leave it there, I'll go and get the kettle on the boil ready for when Vicki gets home, she is doing one of her lessons at the flower shop where she works, no doubt she will tell you about it on her blog.

Best wishes,

Hope the weather keeps clear for your walking this weekend Bob. We've had wonderful weather up this way but is still a bit nippy with the Easterly wind.
Yeh- glad it's the weekend- l have a list of things for hubby to get through. Spring cleaning and reorganising has gone to my head!

I keep thinking of the TV advert when the old shepherd with bad eyesight started shearing his sheepdog!! Should have gone to Specsavers! I hope Tom fared better!
