‘Oh to be in England now that April’s there …’

Yesterday was a warm, sunny day   –   we have had several recently.  The flowers responded appropriately.  It was a joy to be in England now that April’s here!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even the fish in the pond basked in the sunshine!

Spring! Was that it?

We will remember 5 March.  The sun shone brightly throughout the day and the temperature rocketed to a giddy 15°C.  Had Spring sprung?  Had the new season begun a little prematurely?  Nature seemed to think so.

In the field across the lane the first lambs of the year appeared.

Ewe and three lambs

Some basked lazily in the sunshine.

Another shared a meal with two friends.

In the garden there seemed to be an explosion of colour.

But, as I write, it is now 6 March.  Today is cold and dull with rain threatening.  The crocuses have refused to open.  Normal service has been resumed!

Was that it?  Was that Spring?
