We are having a blizzard!

Last week the temp was 31C and today it’s 2C. I’ve had to cover all my seedlings/tomatoes and bring in the hanging baskets. I was working in the garden in shorts and tee-shirt and now???? The snow is settling and I’ve brought logs up for the stoves and cooker (I cleaned the chimneys last weekend thinking that was that for this year).
We’ve cut the meadow twice this year and who’d believe it’s now under centimetres of snow. I’m very concerned about all the fruit trees as they are in full blossom. The second photo is of an old apple tree outside a bedroom window; it always gives tasty apples but, after today, who knows

Last week? Salads… Tonight? Curry……Ah well, life goes on.

Oh my goodness.
I thought it was bad enough here going from beautiful hot sunny days last week to windy rain this week.
Hope your fruit trees and seedling are ok.

we had 2 hailstorms on 'bank holiday monday' interspersed with wind and rain and looking at your pics " ne'er cast a clout 'til may be out" and I see the old adage reaches across the channel hopefully it won't last too long we all need a nice summer :o)
