I envy you have snow!!! We never have it here. When it gets very cold we sometimes have hail which damages all the plants on the outside. It happens once to 2 times in a year but its enough to ruin so many plants. I have cacti which have markings on them from 3 years back or even more. They never heal completely. For the next winter I plan on covering all the plants with a specialised netting which protects them from such occasions in weather.
Weather at the moment here is very cold wind and showers with sand from the Sahara!!! Will have to hose everything down as soon as this passes over our tiny island. Spring!!! Rolling Eyes

Slad, I'm like that with my area - weird weather, strange occurrences, but I love my home & I think it's so beautiful - I wouldn't want to go either. What I'd love is to visit other places so I could experience what they were like.

Would you believe the forecast is for 13 C & sunshine tomorrow? So strange. I will have to post tomorrow night what the weather turns out like. We got about 5 cm snow but most is already gone - just left in the shady spots.

BTW, I like your signature - "what is life if not a dance?" It's how i feel life should be like.

We get hail too, Lsaliba, but maybe not as bad as you get with the damage you mention. Do you get violent thunderstorms when you have hail? If you get that much damage on your cacti, I can't blame you for wanting snow. But snow is unpleasant unless one enjoys winter activities which I don't.

That wind with rain & sand sounds like a dirty storm. Is the wind you had with Saharan sand a sirocco? I had thought siroccos were hot. Or is it just one of those weather things that you get in Malta? We have an equivalent of a sirocco in Canada but not here near me. It occurs on the other side of the Rockies as the wind drops down from the mountains onto the flat low lying prairies.

Yes Iso we call it a scirocco. It usually brings hot winds but when it occurs during these time of year it is still cold. Malta is situated about 200 miles north of the Sahara desert but it still arrives here. They say it is good for crops but it makes a mess. My wife as most other women here hate it so much because all the tiles and window panes become brown!! Wink
We do have thunderstorms but only in winter and they are not so common. In summer we sometimes have rainy days as well and when it rains in summer believe it rains a lot. Most of the houses here in Malta have wells to preserve water as we have no rivers and the temperatures are quite high in the summer season so we need that little water we conserve in the winter. Temperature in summer can reach up to 45 degrees celsius and its humid so it is very hot. Lucky we have the sea a few minutes away to freshen up a bit. Mr. Green

45c!! Lsaliba. Shocked How do you tolerate that temperature? Does everyone have to go in during the daytime? Just as well the sea is so close. The highest we have had here is 36c. That was last year and that broke records. You get sciroccos too? I am learning so much on this forum and not necessarily about plants!
Our hot weather vanished today. Back to cold wind and cloud which is nearer the norm for England at this time of year.

It gets terribly hot in summer Jekka. At least last year was not so hot. The weather seems to being going real crazy. Today we have wind bursts that almost push you over! It is windy almost all year round. We have no mountains or anything to protect us. Anyone fancy sailing should come living here!! Mr. Green

Just a few quick notes as I'm basically here & gone with lots to do (no, not all garden stuff either).

Weather is definitely weird. Monday, we had about 5-6 cm of snow. Today, 5 days later, it was 25 C & sunny. Unreal! So nice & warm, everything madly blooming & full of life. Spring dawn chorus of songbirds is beautiful to listen to. Will be nice tomorrow too but then is supposed to get a little cooler & rain some more. Better to have it a little cooler so the snow pack doesn't melt to fast & cause heavy flooding. Be back later with more updates!

What were you photographing Lsaliba? Hope it is lots of nce plants for us to look at.
Well, I feel like a broken record now. Easter Sunday=Sun,Sun,Sun. 20 degrees C. Cool Outrageously warm for this time of the year and same forecast for tomorrow. We are the hottest area in England. Made all the Easter eggs melt that we hid in the garden. Crying or Very sad

Just popping by quickly again - sorry for such short & infrequent posts but will have more time later in the month.

Saturday continued warm but not as sunny. Rained a bit yesterday & lots last night & this morning but that's good. That's normal spring time weather for us. Spring is generally nice but can be very variable with no way of knowing what to expect. It's when we get our thunderstorms but none are very severe like other places in Canada or the world.

Temperature is supposed to be more normal than our high of 26 we had on Friday. Normal for us is 15 for high & 6 for a low. It's still possible to get frost but the likelihood decreases the further the month goes along. Our weather is more maritime (although we're about 50 km from the coast) so we have hotter days & cooler nights than Vancouver does. Still, all in all, spring is here & I'm happy to see it at last.

It got down to 20 F for 3 nights in a row here just before Easter. Lots of damage to plants that had mostly leafed out and starting to bloom. Pecan trees looked completely burned off, and so do a lot of others. My prized Robinia lost all their bloom buds and leaves. Up to the 40s at night and 60s in the daytime now. All temperatures are Farenheit. Sorry, I don't know Celcius.

Sorry to hear about your Robinias Andy. Sad

Our weather just seems to be getting hotter and hotter! Today 23C (sorry I don't know farhenheit Very Happy ) That is the normal temperature in England for the start of summer not April. We have had no rain in the South East for 2 weeks and 2 days. I have had to water my whole garden already. Our local waterboard only lifted the hose pipe ban in Jan/Feb this year. I get the feeling it will be back on shortly but my water butts are already empty!
It will be back to syphoning the bath and washing up water for me soon.
