As sometimes happens in February, a mild spell with temperatures around 9 or 10 degrees and so a chance to spend a few hours in the garden.
The Sunday Gardener's favourite job at this time of year is weeding out the perennial weeds. They seem to pull out easier at this time of year and with the earth so bare they are easier to spot to try and get the plot off to a weed free start to the season.
There are a few jobs which can be tackled on these milder days and there are some suggestions in The Sunday Gardener's Calendar for February.
Its great to see buds on the trees and shrubs even if it will be weeks before they break out it's a great reminder that spring is on it's way.
