Daffydowndillies...


These daffodils are just about the brightest thing I've seen so far this month. This Winter seemed to drag on forever and now it looks like the April showers have come early! Nevertheless the sun is climbing a little higher in the sky every day and we get the most amazing light just before it's about to rain, when the sun is burning brightly behind the rain  clouds - everything looks sort of orange and you just know the heavens are about to open.

It reminds me of the saying En avril, ne te découvre pas d'un fil (in April do not remove a thread) - I'll be staying toasty in my woolly jumpers and warm socks until the sun raises it's head for real in the merry month of May!
