|A very beautiful feel of summer at springtime in England|
As they say, England has indeed a strange weather, unpredictable, frustrating, distracting, and simply different. When it is suppose to be bright and sunny, it would rain. There is no assurance of a summer too because if it would not rain, the sun might just be hiding in oblivion. To my recollection, in 2008 we snowed really hard at Easter Sunday which was a lot odd. The following years were fair. It used to snow in January, but last winter it started in November. There are good days though to be happy about.
Over the weekend, the whole of England experienced a very wonderful preview of the summer weather when temperature danced between 22-25 degrees, the best Saturday and Sunday so far after the worst British winter few months back. It is still springtime though as made obvious by the beautiful blossoming of daffodils and tulips, and the stunning colours of flowering trees. The sunshine was up smiling as early as maybe 5:00 in the morning and it continued to treat people all day giving much reason to enjoy and do various things for the family.

The following day greeted us again with another fantastic sunlight, so the temptation to go out was larger than the crack to stay home. We went around again and found ourselves on our way to Hollingworth Lake. According to the locals here, it is the best place to go during summer. Frustratingly, it was very crowded and it appeared that all the residents have flocked to the place before sunrise. We could not find a parking space and so we decided to go back, find another place to enjoy the day. We stopped at KFC for a very nice meal and after that went straight to our friend’s place, had a sensible chat and few more laughs to end the day with delight.
It is not summer yet, but we look forward to experience a better summer this year. The forecast says Britain could have long and beautiful summer this time. The best is yet to come hopefully.
