I have lots of snow here - we haven't had any day with temperature above 0C since more than 3 weeks.

(I love that stickers- it shows it rains while we don't have any cloud on the sky and is sunny.)

As soon as it gets a bit warmer outside, I´ll finally place my order. It`s still too cold at the moment. I think I`ll go for one or two variegated Ta Nees. Ae Ae and Namwah are too risky.

Unhappy Re: Weather forecast

Still cold & crappy here...but hoping March will bring more mild temps and sunny days.


I think it feels like -1°C...3°F today with light rainshowers...but at least the snow is melting. It's slippery & wet out there though...





Spring, PLEASE arrive!

If you choose the cheap (or so it should be) shipping it will take over a month , including the customs process, to get the corms , so you can order already...

I should get my order next Monday... just got a phone call with customs' officers

The officers told me the new rules valid throughout every EU custom.
No more than 5 corms per package if you are not a nursery or a wholesaler.
The papers, including Phitosanitary certificate, a payment recipt and a copy of you identity card and fiscal code must be attached outside the package , otherwise the custom will hold it for inspection and they will ask you the papers again(and it will take at least a week to get thei communication by mail).
The payment recipt must match exactly with the value declared byr the seller on the form attached to the package.

It would be better to send all the paper in advance to thenseller so he can propely prepare the package and , maybe , avoid a long and dangerous stopover at the custom.

I've already informed Thailandplant about it , so he knows what he has to do.... ATGTREE who offer the variegated tanee and Namwah , reply to your mail once every 3 weeks, so be carefull with him ...

Bye

I won`t order from ATGTREE, because I already know their habit not to answer mails quickly enough (although there might be a fat amount of money in sight - I don`t understand those guys). I`ll choose the expensive shipping, that`s for sure.

Having survived the last frost, we can look forward for the spring to come....
In the next few days , Italy will be hit by an Atlantic perturbation that will carry a lot of rain but also a raise of temps with minimum well over 10°!

It's almosttime for the "big excavation" !!!!

Finally spring seems to be here!
We have sunshine and temperatures get higher every day. Today we reached 16 ° C and it'll be around 20 ° in the next days. The soil is still pretty cold after the cold in the last days, but should be warm enough soon, so growth can kick in!

Unfortunately, Spring is not here for us. We got a 10 inch dump last night and it's a white world again out there.

Yeah, the "Ring of Fire" has been firy this year.
Pacific Ring of Fire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
Ten percent of the world's active volcanoes are found in Japan, which lies in a zone of extreme crustal instability. They are formed by subduction of the Pacific Plate and the Philippine Sea Plate. As many as 1,500 earthquakes are recorded yearly, and magnitudes of four to six on the Richter scale are not uncommon.

I too feel sorry for those people,... it's sad. I can't even begin to imagine that - a country with extreme crustal instability and as many as 1500 earthquakes. I've been through 1 earthquake in my life, 5.1 RS.
