Bizarre weather – not complaining!

Not sure whats happening with the weather – March 26th and 19 degrees C, or about 66 degrees F if you prefer. Either way, sun cream needed as its very unexpected. The ladybirds probably thought so too, coming out in swarms. It reminded me when I was a child that once a year a tree stump in a favourite park in Urmston (Manchester, UK), was covered in hundreds of yellow and black striped caterpillars. It always enthralled me and that’s exactly what these ladybirds have done too.
