I was a little confused on the weather forecast this morning when the announcer said that today was the first day of the Spring Equinox.
Although DB doubts
me somewhat, I am positive that when at school, I was taught that they
were March 21st, June 21st, September 23rd and December 21st. I know
this because I could never get a straight answer from the teacher as
to why September was the 23rd and not the 21st like the other three!
I understand that from a
gardening point of view, March to May is Spring, June to August
is Summer, September to November is Autumn and December to February
Mind you, after nipping out to do a little shopping this morning as well as returning some library books, we came out to a snow shower. So, regardless of whether it is officially spring or winter, the weather is currently cold enough to indicate to me, that it still feels like winter.
We began eating the bread I made yesterday using Paul Hollywood's recipe. Verdict - delicious. We had an egg sandwich for lunch with a bowl of piping hot sweetcorn soup. Tonight we shall have pulled pork Shepard's pie.
