Happy May Day!

After a wet, foggy weekend, 1st May is mild, still and dry, the sun trying to break through the hazy cloud and everyone about their Spring business.

How’s your Monday?

In limbo, longing for Spring

We’re not there yet… March is a limbo month: the winter snows have gone but the new grass and the colours of Spring are still waiting below ground, waiting waiting for the sun to warm the earth and give the signal to begin the growing season. But soon, soon!

Spring is (almost) here

The cockerels are announcing the coming of Spring, and with new lambs heralding the beginning of life in the fields and woods around us, we can be sure that Mother Nature is busy.

Even though it doesn’t feel like it… Like Britain, Romania is still in the grip of a winter that doesn’t want to let go. It keeps snowing and melting, snowing and melting, and the winds blow, and the clouds lower. Work must begin on the vegetable gardens and the pastures, but it’s hard in the zero degree temperatures.

But this is what is around the corner – blue skies, wild flowers, life green, fresh and colourful. We can’t wait!

What’s the weather like where you are?
