Spring has arrived!

The spring equinox happens at precisely 11.02 GMT this morning! The sun will be exactly over the equator and the day and night are exactly the same length.

The spring equinox heralds the official arrival of spring and temperatures start to rise. Well that’s the theory anyway! Last year we had such a brilliant March with temperatures more like summer that somehow we all thought that it would happen again.

Perhaps it’s better having such a cold start to the year. I’m really hoping that it means that the summer will be super. That aside it is not unusual for the weather to be cold at Easter. I definitely remember it snowing at Easter 2008, I was away in my caravan and when we woke on Sunday morning the world was white!

Many of the spring flowers don’t seem to be put off by the weather. The crocuses are fabulous and the daffodils are just starting to open. It won’t be long before we are basking in glorious sunshine.
