April …….

….though if you are in England you would be forgiven for thinking it was still January….

April is here, with the delight of Spring blossoms, renewal, and cheerful sunny days. In theory. Spring is currently buried under rain, cold and snow in England, with the coldest Easter on record. The temperature in Braemar, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, dropped to a chilly -11C (…@12F). More of the usual delightful weather that keeps everyone in Britain guessing, as it always has since the Romans were present – and complaining about the weather too, all those years ago. Across the Atlantic, there are cold, wet grey skies in Knoxville Tennessee, though we are assured it will soon change for the better.
