3 Indicators of Summer’s Arrival

April 10, 2011

The last two days have been bright, warm and dry. Although spring has only just arrived, it’s nearly set to leave on the basis of this weekend.

There are a few things about this weekend that I would put as top indicators of summer’s arrival, and obviously one of them is about food:

1. Bees and sunshine – plenty of both this weekend

2. Outdoor activities – such as bike riding, again some of that this weekend too.

3. Outdoor eating and drinking – as soon as the sun shines on a Sunday, beer gardens in pubs across the country get filled up. I experienced this today, when trying to find a table at the Saxon Mill – with a beer garden overlooking a river. This wasn’t possible so we made the short trip to The Warwickshire, where it was easy to find a table and fun to watch golfers knocking ball after ball into the lake.

Today’s consumption is tagged.

    Pretty comprehensive list, but can’t believe ‘the smell of freshly cut grass’ didn’t make the list lol! Why is it people only cut the grass in the summer? What happens in the winter?

      I also missed off ‘people see the need to walk around town topless’.

      It’s cold and not sunny in the winter, so the grass doesn’t grow?! People around here are gardening all the time, even when it’s dark!
