Well that was a winter to forget. None of the crisp dawns this time around just the thuds of rain on the conservatory roof as clouds rolled in from the west and did their best to make everything muddy!
There were some bright days but they were far too few. Instead it was wet and far too dank. Instead of hard frosts we got mud and then more mud and the formation of new lakes that haven’t really disappeared since the late summer. Thankfully, this has made for interesting images but little else.
So lets us all hope that the spring starts to dry things out and the place returns back to some form of normality, providing we don’t panic over the latest winter virus and instead take sensible precautions and accept that people, at this time of year, get ill and some unfortunately don’t survive. Hopefully the longer days and warmer weather might help to bring this latest outbreak under some form of control before we all lose our heads – the media are certainly not helping!
So the early buds are out and as I write this it is a cool but bright morning outside. Let us hope this is the start of a wonderful spring…just please far less rain!
