Well, it’s grey, but no rain
The tree just stands firm
But a close look at the pear tree reveals that the blossom is hiding itself from the frost! This is what it was like last year on this date.
We woke to a glorious blue sky. It may not last, but here’s the proof!
Today is Good Friday, and astoundingly the recycling bins were emptied this morning. Not ours, it isn’t yet full enough for emptying. Looking back at last year everything was much more advanced. No sign of blossom so far this year.
Such a relief! Another good start to the day. So good to see the sun
There was a post last year, but no pictures.
Yes, sunshine! However, cold doesn’t even touch the spot! It’s BITTERLY cold!
What was it like last year? See here.
Last year, though, the situation was completely different! Take a look.
… nothing but grey skies!
and still a touch of snow on the shed roof!
Now, last year……. and it’s still SOOO COOOOLD!
… it looked as though it was going to get brighter
but it didn’t last, and that snow is persistently sticking to the shed roofs.
We were travelling last year, but the weather was glorious all over the country.
The pictures tell the story. Compare it to last year!
However, last year I was somewhere very different!
It was an early start today
…. but it was very cold and the early brightness gave way to dull skies as we travelled.
I showed you something rather different last year.
