Tuesday at Two (April 2nd)

Well, it’s still very cold here. The official reports say that the north of Germany had the coldest month of March in over 130 years… here in the south it was not quite that bad, but still unseasonally cool!

A few flowers are finally braving the icy north-east wind…

And like me, they are ever optimistic that some warm sunshine will eventually come…

Spring is certainly on its way – just a little slower than usual! πŸ˜€

Is it finally warming up where you are? Or is there still snow in the air, like here?

  1. Everywhere the weather is changing. Yesterday it was 70 and today it’s 55 with rain on the way. I think April is uncertain, but I’m sure May will bring an abundance of flowers with all the trees green.

  2. European weather seems to be breaking records all over this year. We are having more cloud and rain than usual and the temperature fluctuates hugely. I look forward to more settled weather.

  3. Lovely to see the spring flowers. The coldest March for 130 years is impressive – but probably not very welcome. Still bitterly cold here, but we’re told it’s going to get warmer next week, or maybe the week after…

    • Perhaps we should just wrap up very warm and brave the chill and get outside gardening… the best therapy! I have so much to do, and I know when it finally does warm up I’ll run out of time!

    • The wind is icy here too – can’t be long now till the milder weather sets in. The bulbs really lift the spirits, and I bought some small daffodils for our Easter table – having flowers indoors too is very cheering. πŸ˜€

  4. I met a couple from Germany yesterday and they said that a lot of the trains were cancelled due to the cold weather! Great to see a bit of colour in your garden πŸ™‚

  5. Oh my! I can only imagine the cold as we have been having a warm spring here along the central coast of California. The flowers poking their delightful heads above the cold earth are sure signs that spring will find it’s way!

  6. Slowly warming up on this side of the Channel Cathy but we still have to hit double digit day time temperatures. Rumour has it that might happen next week. We have had the coldest March since 1962 which I can just about remember πŸ™‚ Your post ends on a most heartwarming spring scene.

    • It is exactly the same here Anna – no chance of it warming up much for at least a week! Still – time for some spring-cleaning in the house before the garden season begins! πŸ˜‰
