Middle of the week

  Another mid week and I was hoping to be able to say what lovely weather we have but no. There is a saying that my parents always use and its " Don't cast a clout till May is out "  I was never sure whether it meant the flower May of the month,  so if its the month we have a bit of a wait before we get any good weather. Does not look like any nice weather today as again we have rain. 

I was very sad in March to hear about the passing of Pollyanna Pickering, Such a great loss of a wonderfully talented lady, She will be missed,
