I kid you not, snow in May!
I had to bring house plants back inside, to protect them from frost damage they had been expecting a lovely warm summer basking outside in the sun. The first guests of the season who arrived last Monday did not see the mountains until Thursday and they asked us; "is the weather always like this in May"? I had to reassure them, it was not and in fact the weather the previous week had been glorious with lot's of sunshine and temperatures soaring to 25 degrees Celsius.
At this time of year, normally we would be working in the garden or having nice days out. There was nothing else to do but stay indoors and wonder when the unrelenting rain, clouds and cold would go away.
On Thursday I was cheered by a lovely parcel.
