Today we celebrate Spring Equinox, and what a long-awaited time it has been. Our winter seems to have gone on forever, and yet we didn’t really experience a prolonged cold spell. It was just grotty, and dull, and miserable. We had a very bizarre week in February where the temperature leaped, and we had sunshine. Indeed, it felt more like a British summer than winter, but it soon passed, and we were straight back into the storms. And boy, those storms were intense. I had to retrieve our bins when they got blown about the garden, and one hit my car a couple of times, but that was about the extent of it. We don’t really experience any extreme weather here in Cheshire. It’s quite boring by comparison.
And now we welcome Spring. There are buds on the trees, some of the cherry blossom is already blooming, and there are daffodils everywhere that look very cheerful on dull days. It is much nicer to walk the dogs when the sun is shining, or at least when the temperature is warmer. I am now looking forward to Easter, a break from school, and the start of festival season. Let the parties commence!
