Hi Angie,

I live in a part of the world where we do not get snow except on very rare occasions (like three or four times in 60 odd years!)

Like living in the north African desert regions in the heat, or 'snowbound' northern Scandinavia etc. I guess that person born to those weather conditions knows what living in them means from season to season.

Here we are so spoilt that we complain big time when the temps dip to 14C. We don't dress for 'the temp' or the cold, then grimace when the wind blows! Must say though, temps were really high for summer Jo'burg today - 34c-36C, it really was a day to keep cool inside.

Ah well!

Cheers now,

Whew 34c-36C is warm. I always think of 21C as perfect weather so 34C would be pretty HOT.

It wasn't supposed to snow today, but it did. At least the tempurature inched over 20 degrees today, it's supposed to be almost 60 by Wednesday. Single digits to almost 60 in less then 7 days, weird...

Yep guys, there is something certainly changing in weather patterns globally (Luckily very mildly in Johannesburg and surrounds)- even the trees get confused and are not sure on whether or not to drop leaves or come out in bloom. Our Jacarandas were blooming later this year and for some reason not in such profusion - or it may be that it was because I was not noticing until 'later on'

Our farmers have to plan very carefully these days too! Though that's just what I think only, as I have not spoken to anyone and I am not a farmer!

Cheers now

It's 36 now and the ice on the neighborhood streets is beginning to melt. If it freezes again during the night, then the roads will be very slippery.

Sunny but cold.....only about 30 degrees farenheit with a cold breeze. That is actually warmer than what it has been in the last few days. We had high temperatures around 16-20 degrees, with nights feeling like it was below zero with the wind chill factor. I long for warm spring weather and the ability to be out in nature without freezing. The cold can seem to get right into my bones and not leave.

Dear all,

Another concern during unseasonal rain and too much water is poor draining soils in small-space gardens and I am having to think about transplanting a couple of 'very old' rose bushes that are really taking strain and that I do not want to lose.

I will tell all how I solve this if there is a story to tell or something to be learnt but guess at this stage will 'just' replace the roses with some wet feet plant like American Pitcher Plants or so in containers so that I don't get caught again.

Do you have some suggestions for wet feet plants on your favourites list - please let me know if you do.

Cheers now

Heat wave at 39. We'll see what tomorrow brings. I hear that on Tuesday the temperature is expected to be 60. Winter one day and spring the next.

Lestie, the weather in Kansas has warmed up and most of our 20+ inches of snow has melted. Our backyard pond is full. The robins can find worms again; the snow made hunting for worms extremely difficult!

I hope that this has broken our drought cycle. Our parched earth needed the healing moisture.
