… and then, straight after we posted “Forlorn February” the weather changed totally and the skies were blue!
It was cold in the mornings but there was real heat in the sun and it was half term week so lots of children were able to experience the Valley in warm sunshine! Of course, underlying the pleasure in such delightful weather is the knowledge that this just isn’t right, it is part of the eccentricity of of a climate being pressured, pummeled and twisted by global warming. This is just as much a symptom of that as the “Beast from the East” that we suffered in this week last year. But it happened and we enjoyed it, getting some work done in the garden and enjoying walks and getting out and about.
Let’s just hope that we don’t have to pay for such generosity
with more unexpected and less attractive weather later in the year.
