Stormy Weather

On almost every day of the year I spend hours working on my laptop or computer writing my novels or working on other writing related matters.

Working in my organic garden, growing my own as well as ornamentals provides exercise and time to think about my work as a historical novelist.

This year it has snowed and rained. The soil is cold and water-logged making it impossible to plant seeds outdoors, and as my greenhouse is unheated it's not worth sowing seeds in it in compost. Today, the weather was milder. Tomorrow I hope to dig in generous quantities of manure and replant my rhubarb. Hopefully the weather will improve and the soil will warm up.
