Tuesday, 4 May 2010


What date is it? Ah yes, May, 4 May. And we are currently in the midst of a full-on blizzard. May. Blizzard. The two don't go together somehow, now, do they. You remember that rather nice piccy that I took on Sunday, of the beech trees and their wonderful new foliage? As I type, I can hear the heart-wrenching gunshot sound of tree branches, complete with their new coat of fresh leaves, splitting and breaking under the weight of the heavy, wet snow in the woodland opposite. How very unseasonal. How very unwelcome. Let's hope we have a stinking hot week next week and the melt happens quickly. I have road biking and running to do, not to mention potager potterings to be getting on with!
