Slow Spring

I think I was a bit spoilt by last April, when the lowest temperature in the whole month was 0.8°C/33°F. This month there have been eight days when it has been below freezing and the same number of days when the mercury has dragged itself above 10°C/50°F.


Of course the warm April last year turned out to be disastrous for the apples, plums and pears, so perhaps I shouldn't be complaining. But it would be nice not to have to be wrapping up in hat, scarf and gloves every time I go out...

We are having a typical Texas Spring here!! It has been in the 70 and 80's...(degrees) lately but today was 95! Then thunderstorms rolled in and dropped raina nd hail and high winds tore around! Then it left. 77 degrees is forecast for tomorrow! Weird!
