April Showers




This is what Pumpy and I awoke to this morning here in southern England. Fat, sloppy, cold snowflakes. Most of it is gone now but there's a chill in the air that feels distinctly wintery.

Personally I don't care about the weather because I enjoy eating and sleeping inside all year long. But I know certain people in this house would really welcome some warm, sunny days when they could plant a few flowers in the garden and sit outside in a sun spot and drink a cup of tea.

Hi Pearl & Pumpy,
Thanks for your nice post on my blog. I hope you both will enjoy The World Is Your Litter Box when it comes out!

Your Friend,

Get well, Pearl's Mum. I think a self-imposed NyQuil knock out is the best part of being sick. At least you aren't missing out on any stellar weather?

Yuck. We are already hot here. Makes for very lazy days on the patio.

see you there! said...

EEP! I thought it was chilly here but compared to your situation our 60F would feel downright balmy.
