        It feels colder than that in the wind here. Did a bit of gardening then came inside to thaw out. I don't think it was this cold at the same time last year.

                I have recently become more active and noticed that I need the heating on a lot less....correlation or milder weather?

                Does anyone know if the frosts are over (or likely to be)? I have my pot plants on their upturned saucers (to keep the roots further away from ground level) and would like to know when I can invert the saucers back to their normal position.....or take some delicate plants out of hiding (they are tucked away from the worst excesses of winter).

                I guess there was a time when it was relatively safe to predict the answer to this question but now freak weather feels like the new norm.
