Snow-bound greenhouse

I waded through the snow to the greenhouse today, thinking about the parsnips I've still got in there and wondering whether they'd be dig-uppable. Luckily the eastern doors slide, otherwise I would not have got inside.

I took a fork to the parsnip bed, but it is still frozen solid, so no joy there. I left the greenhouse to its winter peace and solitude.

Outside, it's still just about the snow. We did get a bit of rain for a change on Saturday, which means that the driveway is back to the December layer of ice again. But everywhere else is still pretty snowy.

But the sun was shining and it's now setting well past five o'clock, so the year is turning towards summer, even if it does feel like a long way off.
