Saturday morning.....

Right. Well, this morning, I looked out of the window from my bed, and the sky was blue and the sun was shining. So I got up, got dressed and came downstairs to see my garden. I put on a t-shirt because, hello, the sun was shining then and it looked like summer.

Wrong.

I went out, the sun vanished and I shivered in the icy wind. I lasted 4 hours in that t-shirt, refusing to believe it woudol stay cold, and am now decked out for mid winter. If snow falls, I am ready. I am unamused. The garden is so wet. I should have planted pond plants.

And now the sun is out again. I also know that the moment I stick my nose out of the door, the sun will disappear, of course. And there is an impressive record of rain for the carnival procession. Never mind, the bright umbrellas always make the Rec (recreation ground in the centre of the village) look cheerful. And on the positive side, I will not be watering the garden, so that saves the water bill from hitting the ceiling. And things are still growing. And the mouse does not like the rain.

I believe that my sister is freezing her you-know-what off down on the rec!

The weather is playing catch-me-if-you-can at the moment. It seems to be warmer in the evenings. What's that about?

It is winter here, so we expect to be cold. It is lovely and fine, so not too bad to be out & about. I much prefer this to the humidity of summer!

We are having a really slow start to summer here too! Everyone is really miserable and complaining about it....but I am pretty content to have it rain a bit every day if it means I don't have to turn my sprinkler system on!!

Weird weather you're experiencing...more to do with that volcano?

My poinsettia kept so beautifully alive since before Christmas (quite a feat now let me tell you) bit the dust in last week's torrents of rain. I never gave it a thought until it was too late.

My thoughts are with your family celebration today and I'm looking forward to some photos!

It has finally warmed up here, but not horribly so. I hope it does there soon! My SIL was here during the cold spell and she was not amused that it was so much like home (over there).

Pace yourself, dear friend!

Oh no!!! How dare the sun duck back when you want to enjoy it. Glad that the mice are not happy campers there though.
