It seems that Spring is 5 weeks late across the country. That was last week I heard that and this week hasn’t exactly been very Spring like so I suspect we must be nearly a month and a half behind now.

It’s five days till May for God’s sake, Mayday is next Wednesday, and most trees and bushes only have buds on them. The daffodils are in full bloom. Summers seem very short as does autumn, and this year Spring has been delayed too. Only winters don’t get shorter.

It seems the farmers have run out of silage which is costing them. One would imagine the late spring is having an effect on the crops and especially the planting.

Maybe it means that we’ll get the good weather in summer this time instead of in late spring and early autumn.

I wouldn’t bank on it though.
