Weather Check

We have had the most glorious weather over this last week  - lovely sunny days but keeping a bit cold thanks to the North wind that's been blowing around the place.  Today though the wind has dropped and this afternoon it feels almost like Summer with temperatures around 14 C, positively T-shirt weather don't you think :-)

All around us Spring is working hard - everywhere you look there are clumps of daffodils

On banks, under trees and along the verges, and nestling not too far away some shy primroses

All the hedgerows are starting to bloom

and then there's forsythia in our neighbour's garden

Isn't this such a lovely stand of trees ?

Don't know what these fellows were up to,but there were rather a lot of them -  looking for lunch maybe ?

Not the clearest photo by any means, but it was a bit of a challenge trying to snap a flock of whirling birds!

So better days are definitely on the way, but before getting all excited about it and loosing the thermal undies - this is what we woke up to first thing this morning

A little reminder that Winter is still lurking there in the background after all!!

Kind of like our weather here in Utah. My iris and crocus bulbs are breaking forth, only to be met by the snow this morning.

Oh to be retired! But at least the sun is shining here in Cornwall! Val
