Excuse me for getting excited – but I just love the snow. It’s powdering my garden to a depth of about 2″ this morning – not much to hardened northerners but for us softy southerners here in Surrey it’s unusually thick and a real novelty!

The only trouble is that it’s the one weather condition (with the possible exception of gale-force winds accompanied by driving torrential rain) which will stop me gardening. I’ve had to cancel one garden this morning and it’s probable I’ll be having some forced holiday time tomorrow morning as well.

Not great for the bank balance – one of the rare disadvantages of life as a gardener is that you don’t always choose when you take your (unpaid) holidays, and the weather is always awful. Or at least cold. Never mind – I can always look out of the window!
