From hosepipe bans and record temperatures in March that had us all thinking that summer had come ridiculously early. To days of heavy showers, thunderstorms and the need to wear those winter sweaters again in April. Such are the joys of the British weather!!
But Nature just gets on with it regardless and the Crab Apple tree in my front garden is thick with beautiful blossom. I cut a few sprays to share them with you before the rain knocked all the petals to the ground.
Though summer must be on its way because I saw my first Swift on Wednesday, of our summer visitors they are the last to arrive and the first to leave. These amazing birds thrill me with their aeronautical displays and the fact that they have flown all the way from Africa to grace us with their presence for the summer.
I hope you all have a lovely and sunny weekend!
