What happened to spring?

I think we've skipped straight from spring to autumn or even early winter! Cold, wet, hail, snow, gales generally awful, dank, dreary, you get the idea.  I'm informed it's all my fault, I have a week off work and that generally means it's awful weather, particularly if I've planned any gardening - not that I have this time.
Any news for the blog? Was met by a chorus of "Nos". So it's been one of those kinds of weeks, fixed on computer screens, pointedly not looking at the dreich outside the window.
So back to the end of year accounts and sending out this week's Weekly edition, 18 pages this time with 45 adverts for paid posts, 20 for volunteers plus details of conservation work days happening next month.
