Early Summer

The weather I've experienced recently has been varied and interesting, to say the least.

I was over in Ann Arbor, near Detroit, recently, and it was a typical English spring: cool, damp, the odd flurry of snow, and a little sunshine. Meanwhile, back home in England itself there was glorious sunshine.

I got a little sunburnt the day I came back, falling asleep in the back garden with a bit of jetlag.

While we've had some poor days, generally Spring has been good. We've already had two or three barbecues out in the back garden.

The downside to all this is that I've had a much stronger dose of hay fever this year. I keep hoping to grow out of it, and last year did in fact suffer far less. So I'm hoping that I'll cope much better with summer proper, when it arrives, and can take advantage of some glorious sunny weather rather than hiding inside with a handkerchief for company.
