Spring is here
I was just walking up from university after a long day in the library (far too much coursework, far too little time!) and it occured to me that spring is here. We've had 3 weeks of sunny, very warm weather but no rain, so all the trees still had no leaves on them. This weekend however it rained, and all the trees are suddenly covered with leaves. Although it's still raining it's a pleasant drizzle, and walking along in the rain was actually pleasant. Winters in the north can be a little unpleasant, when it rains it's usually cold, and very windy, so even umberellas aren't much use!
