We are pretending it really is spring and doing some of the seasonal changeover chores that need to be done. Last weekend we scrubbed half a dozen small rugs and hung them over the railings to drip. We had two days of sunshine, just enough to get them all dry.
Every autumn we put down carpets over the cold tiled floors and every spring they are taken up, cleaned and stored in plastic bags in the shed or under the bed. We still have 2 big carpets to come up but I think it will be June before the weather settles enough to complete that job.
All our roses have masses of blooms and even more buds
