Monday, Monday, can't trust that day...

Mother Nature definitely has her knickers in a twist. Saturday she gave us 3 hail storms over an 8 hour period, covering the ground white hail storms. Lightning, thunder, rain.
Sunday rain all day long. By dark the wind had begun in earnest and the temperature began to drop.
This morning we woke to this…

In front of the potting shed the new hoops over the strawberries are struggling to support the row cover.

Yesterday the chickens appeared totally unaware of getting drenched as they eagerly gobbled up the worms that appeared all over their puddled yard. Today they took one look out their door and told us just what they thought of this turn of events.

The frogs in the pond, however, continue to sing along merrily. Perhaps we should take a cue from them.


  1. It is very pretty though! In the UK we have a saying that is 'Ne'er cast a clout until May be out'. Clout is an old word for a piece of clothing. Some people think 'May' refers to the month but others take it to mean the May flower or hawthorn. In other words, the old saying means don't take your warm clothes off until the May blossom is out because cold weather can return during the spring months!

  2. Oh my goodness!!! It seems so unreal to see this in the middle of April!! Hope no damage was done, other than to your hopes for Spring!! Thanks for sharing these photos, Sharon. Hopefully it will all melt soon in some lovely warm sunshine!!
