With the last couple of days being so sunny and warm it was beginning to feel like spring was fast approaching. With snow drops and iris denticulata blooming, daffodils and grape hyacinth poking up through the soil and hydrangea leaf buds starting to unfurl, why would we think otherwise? Then today, the sun disappeared, the air turned damp and very cold and the weather report has warned of hints of snow mixed with rain in the forecast. So even us “spring optimists” had to say today ~ it’s still winter ~ don our warm coats, scarfs and wish we’d brought hats along to take away the chill.
We have a fun weekend planned with friends and we are really hoping that there will only be a light drift of snow and fingers are crossed for some sunny periods and just maybe a sheltered bench (and blankets!), a fire pit and a hot tub?
