So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria, God and life, teaching and gardening plus the occasional cow

Hot spring!

The weather here continues to be very warm, and of course it seems worse because Easter is so late and the ski resorts are trying to cling on for their bookings, but many lower ones are already closed and I’ve seen people trying to ski over the brown patches.

And so we’ve been doing a lot in the garden, much earlier than usual. I’ve had the Geraniums in the spare room for nearly a month with a little water bringing them on, and Dave is now making noises about putting them in the green house, but we are still having low nighttime temperatures with a little frost, me thinks he’s getting carried away this time, not me!

We’ve put the swing seat in its new place and have already wasted several hours just sitting, watching and listening to the waterfall. The other effect is that although we had a snowfall a couple of weeks ago, there has been no rain and already the farmers are wingeing about their grass growth, but farmers all over the world are never happy!  Nevertheless
after last year, we’re investing in another water barrel for the summer. We were in Salzburg this week and as usual its six weeks ahead of us, with the magnolias nearly over , forsythia in full gas and the trees covered in this strange green stuff. And I’m glad that I have all this to look forward to!  I wonder if a rich person could travel around the world and so live in permanent spring?
