It really is February!

Posted: February 28, 2012 in England, Off Topic, photo essay








On Sunday it was hard to believe it was still February as we had the most incredible blue sky and the first early signs of Spring.

Killerton House, a National Trust property, a few miles north of Exeter was packed as Devonians, who are not used to sunshine in this rainy corner of England, set out to enjoy the weather. It was a pleasant change from worrying about the shrinking economy, reading the good but rather depressing Ashes by Sergios Gakas, and watching the very violent Danish TV series, Those Who Kill. More on those later……

    Norman – Lovely ‘photos! Thanks for sharing. Yes, there are definitely times when the weather just insists that one get outside and enjoy it :-).

    Lovely pictures Norman. It’s snowing in Athens.

  4. Bill Selnes says:

    Norman: I left Florida Sunday morning where it is summer and arrived back in Saskatchewan to -20C. I would like spring.

  5. Norman says:

    Thanks Margot, Sarah and Bill it was another superb day today, but the ground is looking parched and dry. The River Exe was very low and I can see the word drought appearing in the newspapers soon. England’s green and pleasant fields look a bit brown, but by the summer it will probably be raining every day.
    Sarah, snow in Athens, the last time I was there it was 40 degrees!
    Bill, in England we don’t experience anywhere near that sort of temperature difference. It is strange though as a receptionist in our hotel in Helsinki pointed out “You are from Devon where it feels colder at + 10 than it does here at -15”, and we had to agree with her.

    Meanwhile, in New York, it’s in the 40s today, hit the 50s earlier in the week. We’re all wondering where our winter went; 80 days in December, January and February had temperatures above normal. All very peculiar.

    If I were you, Norman, I’d be out there with a folding chair, mysteries and a thermos of tea, enjoying that beautiful weather.
