This morning, when I pulled back the curtains, I was rather surprised by the above scene. We have had hail and sleet this week, with unpleasantly low temperatures, so perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised. However, it is May on Sunday….
The bizarre weather doesn’t seem to have stopped the birds around doing what birds do. For the second time in history, I even saw one in my apple tree.
A magpie and pigeon were having a set-to two doors along – Mr Pigeon presumably felt disinclined to share his lawn and all its worms. In the end, the magpie got the message and took sanctuary in my tree, although I missed a shot there and instead here he is, having moved to the fence for one final ponder on his chance of success down the road.
In all this excitement, a cauliflower seedling I was hardening off got left outside but the snow and such like doesn’t seem to have done it any harm. Maybe it’s time to get it outside permanently then.
