March madness has gripped the weather again this week and it temporally lost the plot for a while but has just got a grip on reality in time for the Spring equinox.
The bright spring days of last week have been replaced by earnest sessions of filling the bird feeders and bringing all of the horses on the farm in to the shelter of the stables as the temperatures plummeted again with the return of “The Beast from the East”
My only consolation was that our Bed and Breakfast guests from Australia and America loved it as they lived in normally overheated climes.
March madness – The mini beast returns!
It sound like the title for a “B” movie doesn’t it? “The mini beast” and we waited until the afternoon on Sunday until the slowly moving weather front arrived in our part of Cornwall and clothe the countryside once more in a pillow of white. With the memory of February’s snowfall that that turned springs golden days to snow and ice we were at least in training this time for Life with the Beast from the East!
This time I thought I would take a few snaps of the farm work that goes on behind the B&B’s as we tucked our horses up for the night in various cosy stables – so much more glamorous that the hours of toil pushing a wheelbarrow for the inevitable mucking out.
Spring days of Daffodils ready for the Equinox and Easter
We had reclaimed the spring days here so well, after the last appearance of the Beast, with the indomitable Daffodils springing back up around the spring garden walk again, restoring what should be a bright and cheerful Easter display.
This March has really been a topsy turvy month of weather madness though, topped of by hysterical newspaper predictions of a white Easter – although consolingly today, the newspapers are also predicting the hottest summer for one hundred years.
Now is it fake new or March madness? Maybe I had better start conserving water ready for the hosepipe ban! Meanwhile here’s some some snaps from our garden to welcome the Spring Equinox.
Have a great week and wishing you all a very happy Spring Equinox!!
