From St Tropez to Siberia
Last week we had glorious sunshine. The joys of spring were everywhere and we basked in temperatures you’d be happy to have on a summer’s day.
My magnolia tree was in full bloom and the sky was that fabulous shade of blue.
This morning an inch of SNOW covered our car!
What is that all about? I mean come on. We were full of the joys of spring and then gales and snow spoil the party. The temperature has dropped TWENTY degrees. Back to the big winter coats.
I feel sorry for the plants. The majority of the flowers have dropped off my prized magnolia, so that is over for another year.
Thankfully the snow didn’t hit us as hard as other parts of the country. We haven’t had any problems with losing power and the roads were fine so travelling was only partially disrupted.
The snow turned to rain and on the way home there was no trace it had snowed today. It is still REALLY cold though. It’s like we’ve gone from St Tropez to Siberia in a couple of days.
One of my favourite songs is Sometimes it Snows in April – by Prince. He wrote that song about last night and today.
Thanks for reading and I hope you escaped the worst of the weather.
