    Ive noticed a problem with the original thread, taking me to page 1 of the thread. Assuming its the same problem as my original Brexit thread (stolen by WMC lol) that there were too many pages, i have started another weather thread (stolen from lightbodyae55 lol).

    The only person who got all his work done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe.
    Anything i post over three lines long please assume it is an article lol.

    Frosty start. Now bright, clear and sunny with “promise” of showers later. Falcon-cam stuff is brilliant. Currently tucking into a late breakfast; pigeon-puree I would guess?

    Morning all. What a lovely day it is here. No wind no frost, it’s dry, but not as cold as yesterday. Car says 10+. Been out for a little drive around, it’s just so nice.

    I confess, I do love a good Gothic cathedral.  It’s nice to see them being used for more than Tourism.  There are peregrines at Winchester, too.  It seems to be de rigueur . . .

    I’m very fond of the one in Winchester – even as an atheist I find it emotionally ‘comfortable’, like wearing a favourite pair of scruffy old shoes.  Canterbury and Salisbury are both impressive, but you can’t potter around them like you can at Winchester.

    So agree about cathedrals. They seem to cast a mist of time over reality. Not at all Christian, much more Pagan. You feel centuries stretching away under the stones. Winchester is certainly a good one; visited a few times while on hols in New Forest. Peterborough is fascinating. Not least for its heating. No, don’t mock. Its “radiators” are, if I remember right, monstrous 10 ft across cast iron, freestanding monsters about 6ft tall and in the middle of passageways. Don’t know if they put them on any more.

    Southwark cathedral also good. Sung in the place many time (Messiah, Passions etc.). Again, very ancient and even more so being right by the Thames. I’m sure the River Gods approve; reckon they like the music! (Acoustics are tricky, have to leave a second or more at end of big phrase to let the reverb soak up what you’ve just sung. In Dulce Jublio had to be sung very slow or it got lost)

    Oh, I know what I was going to say . . .   Yes, they have reintroduced Sea Eagles on the Isle of Wight.  13 White-tailed eagles (aka Sea Eagles) were released in 2019 by the Roy Dennis Wildlife Foundation.  3 have, sadly, died of various reasons, but 6 remain on the Island while the rest have dispersed.  One of the Sea Eagles spent 17 months doing a Grand Tour of England before returning ‘home’ in February.

    Wow! They have been busy over there have they not. On a clear day I can clearly see the IoW from the coast here. Have seen a couple of eagles here. At too high an altitude to ID from looks. Assumed they were Golden Eagles en-route s0mewhere. Might have been the Vectis variants, I suppose.

    Bright, clear with a promised high of 11C later. Lawn pleading for attention which it may get this afternoon. Just had to order new blade for electric one because I have battered the old one so badly. Didn’t think I could ever hammer it back into the right shape.

    Lovely bright Sunshine, but still only 8c.  To quote ‘Pinch Me’ (Bare Naked Ladies) – It’s colder than it looks outside . . .

    Nipped to to visit mum, sister and older brother on Wednesday pm.  Sitting in the garden, drinking coffee from a thermos and admiring their new cat.  I hadn’t seen the first two since early December and haven’t seen brother since last Summer.

    Temperature actually hit 11C. Pleasant. Cooking crowded out gardening and lawn will have to wait until mañana.

    We are only getting about 12C here but it is bright, clear and feeling warmer than that! Lawn definitely has my name on it for this afternoon. If the sun continues to beat down like this, I may be forced to wear the Panama for the first time this year. 🌞

    Still no sign of the swallows, martins etc. Bit late this year.

    if it warms up a bit more i may be able to get out and do some more work on planters.

    Yup. Same here. Temperature forecast was well under. Car temp’ gauge was showing 15.5C, way above the forecast 11C-ish. Very nice it was too!

    Another glorious day.  Squirrel Nutkin has just arrived and is chowing down on his/her 3 breakfast hazelnuts as I type.

    The unkillable climbing rose ‘Golden shower’ (stop sniggering, you at the back!) has burst into leaf seemingly over night.  It has only survived this long because it’s growing in a place I can’t reach.  I pruned to death the other two roses years ago.

    I’m now trying to ignore the state of the lawn.  I was actually pretty good at mowing – I’d do lines and everything!  Now it just gets an occasional trim when DH feels so inclined.

    Bright, sunny and warming up nicely. Forecast is for 15C but I reckon it’ll pass that with ease. Did lawns yesterday with the Brunel. It’s actually quicker than the electric one; don’t have to fiddle with power leads.   Worried about next door neighbour’s back lawn. Wasn’t able to get to it early enough and it is now 1ft high. Dunno if the electric, which is a small thing, can handle it.

    Slight hint of frost overnight. Now bright, clear and warming up nicely, thank you. Have run out of lawns to attend to. May attempt to plant something in window boxes or may just try and do as little as possible. Latter probably best idea as we are getting our second bit of jabbery this a.m. And, as the conspiracy theorists know, the second jab means the giant extra-terrestrial lizard warriors will now be able to see us and who knows what they’ll make us do? Probing? Again? (Maybe something got mixed up with my Colombian coffee beans.)

    Well after a rather dull and cold day yesterday (Wednesday) Today is yet an other beautiful day. Not a cloud in the sky. Bit of a breeze which makes it feel colder than it actually is.

    My son has done the grass cutting, so it looks nice and tidy.

    Thargs been at the  “special Columbia white 🥛 powder coffee” again. or those little dried shrooms.🍄🍄🍄
