I blame the weather. It has been cold and wet all week, really quite depressing. This is our first English spring in thirteen years. Then I remind myself of the frequent wet and cold springs that we had in France, it’s easy to forget that it wasn’t all sunshine and daisies. Earlier in the week we drove to Grimsby to visit a specialist lighting shop. There was a north wind blowing, it was raining, it was grim! We didn’t linger.
Today has been better, with lots of sunshine. I took Rick for a walk along Barff Lane, it was an absolute delight, the hedgerows were awash with hawthorn blossom.
Paul has been busy working in his greenhouse today planting up his tomato plants. Peppers, chillies and bean plants are still lined up in my garden room waiting to go outside. Overnight temperatures are still low and there is a warning of frost tonight. Come on summer, hurry up and get here.
