Well it's turned milder recently, the daffodils are blooming, but after a very dry start spring has sprung a leak!
The gardens and allotments have all had a good watering and there is more rain on the way this week but with winds blowing from the south, temperatures will be above average in most places, especially on the North Wales coast.
Mind you, something tells me we haven't seen the last of winter yet and there is a hint that it may turn colder next week.A host of golden daffodils at Resolven Lock in the Vale of Neath by Mike Davies:
Low pressure will be bringing rain and strong winds, and as temperatures drop I wouldn't rule out some sleet and snow!
Of course, cold snaps during the spring months are not unusual and frosts late in the season can cause a lot of damage.
Delicate plants can be wiped out and cold and wet weather in March and April increases the risk of hypothermia in new born lambs so sheep farmers will be keeping a very close eye on the forecast.
