Difficult to Believe

We spent another couple of hours at the allotment tidying up our fruit bushes and strawberry bed as well as weeding to prepare beds for digging. It’s odd working on the plot at the moment because the weather has made such a slow start to spring everything still seems to be in winter mode and it’s hard to fathom out what month we’re actually in.
On the plot this year nothing is making any effort to grow compared to last year when the pear blossom was out, the hawthorn was coming into leaf, and the redcurrants were in leaf. The grass was growing well looking lush and green and dandelions in the grass were flowering. 
The forecast for the coming week doesn't look to have much to offer in the way of warmer weather. That milder spell of weather can’t come quick enough to get spring finally under way and put an end to winter which has gone on for ever this year.
