Two days of wall to wall sunshine and everyone I know looks and feels better for it. Here in the UK it has been a long, cold and dreary winter and now, suddenly, it is Spring - at least for a day or two. Spring flowers which have been in bud for weeks and weeks have burst into bloom today and I fear that they will be over and done with by the end of the week-end.
This morning on our weekly market I bought more alpines for the top rockery and pansies for a trough under the sitting room window. Then I came home and planted the alpines - it took me ages as I am not really up to doing gardening jobs - but I managed it. Then I planted my pansies, watered them and left them there to soak up the sun.
Summer clothes are emerging from wardrobes - slowly. Mine might even start moving tomorrow (with my mother's voice ringing in my ears - ne'er cast a clout til May be out! In my day winter vests and liberty bodices stayed put until the first of May come what may in the way of weather.
