Snowy Carpathian Spring

7am, 7th April: We can never take Spring for granted, 1,000 metres up in the mountains! Feel the North Wind blowing…

gales & snowThe end of March brought delightfully warm, sunny Spring weather, and the daffodils sprang from the ground to nod in the balmy air.

This morning, I was blasted from sleep at 5am by gales trying to blow my house to Oz. That was it for sleep, so I got up. When the light revealed the landscape, we were back to white. Snow is now coating the daffodils and time will tell if they can survive it, poor things. It’s nowhere near freezing, so they might come through.

At least the fruit trees are still in tight bud, so this time the blossom won’t be blown off the trees. Fingers crossed…

The yoyo weather will bounce again, and the sun will be back before long.

Just to remind you – a few days ago, we had a wonderful sunrise…
