Yesterday and Today

Hail 01 Wm


What a difference a day makes.

This was the scene yesterday afternoon. A dramatic storm for this time of year.


Hail 02 Wm


Thunder and lightening. Hailstones on the wall.

Blossom torn from the trees. New herb plants that Iā€™d just put out, flattened against the soil. The temperature plummeting overnight, almost to zero again.

And yet this is what greets us today:


Blue sky Wm


Lunch outside on the terrace. Real warmth in the sun.

How long will it be before I dare break out the shorts?
