The usual April summer is upon us. I saw a headline in a Donegal online news outlet this morning proclaiming that Donegal would be as warm as Spain today. The other day, they were even more jazzed because we'd be warmer than Ibiza, Lisbon, Barcelona AND the south of France. Exciting times. I have not yet seen the word, 'scorchio' being used, although 'scorcher' was in today's weather story, so it's getting close to those inevitable scorchio sorts of days.
Even the wee puppy isn't very keen on these warm days. It's such a contrast from Monday, when it was chilly, with a strong wind, dark grey skies, and some rain. On that day, he picked up this beret from a pile of leaves and twigs.
A friend/neighbour brought me a bouquet of flowers from the gardens here a little while ago. Aren't they beautiful? I love the addition of the parsley--it's so pretty such a beautiful shade of green.
Bill was in back of our shed yesterday and discovered the pot we'd placed back there last autumn. We'd planted some chard in it, but it got eaten. It's growing again, so we put it in the sunshine.
I hope there are some lovely things blooming in your part of the world today.
