Congrats on the twins even though it was a few years ago :o) and I couldn't agree more. 2nd April is our wedding anniversary and it snowed then.
we had snow yesterday.

I never plant summer bedding until June, though that can also have frosts. GC make a 'killing' people spend at Easter then many re-spend in June.

In April of 1982 I had to climb out through the kitchen window because we couldn't get the doors open it snowed so much. It was literally over my head and I tunneled through the snow like a gopher hoping to find my back door. We also had big April snowstorms in 2018 & 2020. Nobody wants to see snow in April but Winter wasn't quite done with us yet! it happens. I'm not even thinking of Boston. Fuhgeddaboudit!

Happy Birthday to David & Michael on their 33rd Birthday and congratulations.

53yrs ago April 7th my son was born, it had been a bad winter, snow on the ground and very icy conditions that lasted well into the third week of April, 3yrs later April 9th, it was a Good Friday and my youngest daughter was born, we were experiencing a very warm beautiful April that went on to become a gorgeous summer, in the years since we have bounced backwards and forwards weather wise, like you I don't take any chances and know full well not to plant out my tender plants, untrusting of our english, very changeable weather, a lot of younger people think we are talking rot and don't know what we are on about, lol....
