The weather has felt cold most of the time and it has rained...April is really living up to it's saying of 'April showers.....so much so that I worry about the amount of water I am losing over the top of my water butts!!
Some days have had breaks in the clouds with a few sunny spells and some days have been grey throughout..
The temperatures have been a little below average for this time of year (or so the weatherman informs us) and we are definitely back to jumpers and coats for the foreseeable future I think.
The rain is good for the gardens although Anglian water have stated that the hosepipe ban won't be lifted until December no matter what sort of summer we have..in all fairness if we have a wet summer then we shouldn't need to water...and if we have a dry summer then the water situation won't improve so that seems fair enough!
Winds have been up and down with the rain and hail and this has also affected the temperatures.
The cloudy skies have brought warmer nights though and we haven't seen a frost since last weekend.
Having said all that....today has dawned beautiful and clear and there is a nice crispness to the air that only a good spring rain brings....no doubt it will rain before days end though!!
