After weeks of unpredictable weather which has included rain, snow, gales, freezing rain and ice pellets, we seem to have bypassed spring, at least for a day and gone straight to summer. After our trip to Cape George yesterday, we returned to find that the inshore temperature had hit 25 C. As we drove through town, we saw lots of shorts in evidence and even students from the university sunbathing ~ in March!
With all this sunshine and warm temperatures, I am seeing signs of spring in the garden too. The bulbs that I planted late last autumn are starting to appear and it seems that there may be flowers before the end of the week. And just to prove that the boots finally did come off....for a day or two at least. Roll on spring!
