Usually when I celebrate my birthday in April it is reasonably ok, weather-wise.
Barring those pesky April showers of course.
There have been years when we have gone for sunny-but-blowy walks in the countryside. There have been years when we have walked in short sleeves along the Dorset coast. And there have even been years when we have picnicked under cherry blossom.
So far there has only been one year when it snowed on my birthday. That was in 2008 in the Cotswolds.
Here’s the evidence:
I thought that was a freak occurrence. But this birthday could prove me wrong. To me it already feels like my birthday is happening early – some time around January.
But whilst the wintry weather is unwelcome, an early birthday present is always appreciated.
Especially when it is as special as the one I received on Sunday from Rachel.
You may remember this teaser photo from yesterday:
A huge thankyou to Rachel. I will be returning the favour next month with a selection of the pride of my stash.
I just hope it doesn’t snow on her birthday!
