Spring is sprung
True, for once, the sun lasted about three hours before strong winds blew up and black clouds scurried in .
Oh well, I thought, not too bad it is April after all.
Twenty minutes ago there was a huge flash of lightning, followed by a massive hail-storm, then in the time it took me to run for my camera, it had turned to torrential rain.
The photograph, meant to show the heaps of hail stones, instead shows a small river running down the road at the front of the house.
Oddly, it is warm.and at present the sun is shining again.
No wonder the Brits are stoics when it comes to weather. The only thing we haven't had today is snow. But the day is only half over.
