Really it should be April downpours!
We have a couple of days of sunshine without rain and the ground starts to look like it might be thinking about drying up.
Then the heavens open and we are swimming in mud again. It seems to be never ending! The other day we rode out in reasonably nice weather but it wasn’t long before we were being drenched in some very cold rain which turned to hail after a few minutes. All of the lambs in the surrounding fields suddenly started complaining and before we knew it they had disappeared into the hedges. It didn’t make them quiet though – we were surrounded by a wall of sound.
On the bright side, the rain means that I have good reason to wear my riding skirt. It keeps both of us lovely and dry – although when I am wearing it I’m sure the rain is more likely to hold off!
Another positive is that since the clocks went forward we have been having some lovely light evenings and there is finally time to ride after work. It is wonderful to get more riding!
