Any body able to shed a light on what is coming the end of the week. They said not to go planting as your seeds will be vulnerable due a cold front coming down

" the borrowing days "

" the borrowing days "... always appears with a few bad days early april
Also known as The Reabhog Days.

The Irish version of the fable concerns an old brindled cow, ‘An tSean-Bhó Riabhach’. The old brindled cow boasted that even the tough weather of March could not kill her, so March borrowed three days from April and using these with added fury, killed and skinned the poor old cow. The first three days of April were traditionally known by such names as Laethanta na Riabhaiche, the Borrowed or Borrowing Days or the Skinning Days.

Just said on the bbc there's no warm weather around for the foreseeable future, so that'll mean no grass either..........................................:thumbdown:
