The freeze has well and truly lifted here and I wish it was back to be honest!

Not for my plants of course, but rather for my mountain biking. On Sunday the mud and the puddles were starting to freeze and dry up essentially, but tonight it was back to mudfest time and when I came back home my bike was filthy and needed a good hose down.
