Well, it’s rain, rain, rain around here for the next 6 days if you believe the forecast. I don’t usually believe the forecast when the weather is supposed to be good, so why should I believe it when the weather’s supposed to be bad. That might make me an optimist and a pessimist which likely equals out to being a realist, which sounds about right. I’m being stiff upper-lipped about the weather, though. I keep telling myself that April Showers bring May Flowers and that it’s like this every year. Spring is wet, but at least this week it’s rain and not snow and the temps are steadily rising and the sun and the flowers and the birds and the bees will be here soon. Hmm… might be an optimist after all.
Honestly I envy you your rain, the start of April has been dry here, which is leading to us needing to water our newly planted out potatoes and alliums. It’s just crazy, if this continues there will be serious problems in terms of yield for farmers. We had something similar last year and the only onions you can buy are about half the size you’d normally get. But I hope you get more colour jolly soon!

Time seems to be speeding up for me now. I feel like I expect a brief couple days of nice weather before it gets hot.
