It’s the end of April and there is frost on the ground and ice on the windscreens.
What is the weather doing? Well, ne’er cast a clout until May is out, and the flower and the month aren’t even here yet.
Vapour trails from aeroplanes high in the sky cut through the blueness. Frost gives wonderful outlines to the plants on the ground. Long, winter shadows cast a nod to the morning sunshine.
It’s spring, but not as we know it.
