Iím really beginning to feel like I havenít seen the sun in months. It has been grey and damp for a week now with rain or mist several times a day, or so it seems. I wonder if this is what is meant by an English spring? Everything is very lush and green, and the flowers are blooming, and it reminds me of Heleneís wedding in the Cotswolds. Still, it doesnít feel like spring, like May. It still feels like the end of winter, that late March transition period. I wonder, will this be a cool, damp summer as well?
