Tomorrow is the first of May

Tomorrow is the first of May
Tomorrow is the first of May but Spring is taking a long time to arrive here in the Lakes. The tree branches are still in tight bud and only the odd brave bluebell is starting to open its petals. Oh for some warm sunshine to bring everything on quickly!

"The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You're one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
a cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
And wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you're two months back in the middle of March."
- Robert Frost
