A Snowy Day in May!

Spring is in the air

fig-leafThere’s been a sudden rise in temperatures and it’s unusually warm for this time of year. Spring is definitely in the air. Today at midday the thermometer reached 24ºC and the days are now sunny and warm and the evenings mild. In fact, we haven’t lit the wood stove for the last three nights.

I’ve noticied a sudden burst in growth in the fig trees and so I thought I’d put up a photo of one of the buds today.
