Just For A Change
This last week has been horrendous weather-wise. Almost all day every day there has been a hard, cutting wind growling and stamping around in the woods behind our house, bashing the dustbins about and spreading their contents up the lane. Then, for the edification all the new born lambs in the fields around, we’ve had a sample of every type of precipitation available from the current catalogue. Rain, hail, snow, one after the other with hardly a half an hour break between them. At the same time, there was also a shortage of clouds. I’m not sure exactly why, but my guess is that the wind was blowing so strongly that there wasn’t time to get them out of their boxes, unwrapped, fluffed up and on the conveyor belt, to be able to fulfil the delivery quota. The end result was a very uneven cloud cover – and sometimes as much as ten minutes of sunshine, suddenly and for no apparent reason, between the deluge, the hail and/or the snow.
And today? For most of the day it has been warm and sunny. We went out for a drive, zipped our coats right up and opened the sun roof to let the sunshine in. It was almost Spring-like.
Oh yes. the picture. It’s a Hyacinth – I mentioned the carry on between him and Apollo once before – have a look here. I thought you’d seen enough lambs for the minute.
