It’s not often…

… we sit up here and listen to the South East of England getting all our weather. I used to live in Maidenhead so the news bulletins have been a bit of a trip down memory lane, albeit one where memory lane has required a pair of chest waders and/or a rubber dinghy to negotiate.

We were forecast all sorts ourselves today from sleet to heavy rain to ice, but so far apart from one short snow flurry it’s actually been (whisper it) sunny, if cold. It only promises to be a brief respite between storms but I took the opportunity of a free afternoon after my epic work bout to go and see whether anything was going on in the garden – looks like the snowdrops have recovered from last year’s harvest, anyway.

Whether you’re flooded, soggy, or just anxiously watching the waters rise, hang on in there. Spring *is* on its way…

It has to be.

  1. Yes, spring is on its way. Unfortunately, that doesn’t guarantee it’ll stop raining! We can live in hope, though.

    True! Maybe slightly warmer rain?

    We can see Wales from here, so we always get lots of rain. I tell myself that that’s why it’s so green and pleasant. Right now there’s a bit too much green and not so much pleasant though.

    I’ll earmark your post for in six months time when I’ll be needing the same touch of hope. LOVE the snowdrops – I don’t believe they grow here in NZ.
