Hints of Spring

Last Sunday, after a snowy start, mild sunny weather in the afternoon got me out in the garden clearing out more dead foliage, and spotting this season's weeds starting to emerge. Also cleared the tomato and chilli plants from the greenhouse -- the last few tomatoes hadn't ripened, but there was almost a pound of chillies in various colours from green, through purple to orange and red.

More snow Monday and Tuesday, but milder today, if wet.

A net.acquaintance visited, so I'd taken the day off work to play tour-guide, and the weather meant that he got a tour of Cambridge in the rain, lunch at the Crown and Punchbowl in Horningsea, and an impromptu jaunt out to Ely, when sun suddenly burst through the clouds. There it was mild and bright enough not to need the rain-sodden jackets from the morning.

So, despite the damp start, the promise of spring weather put the finishing touches on an enjoyable day of pontification and geekery.
