Unseasonable weather

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

We’ve just had the most amazing hot summer weather – at the end of March!

People got out their T shirts, shorts and sunglasses. But it’s also meant that we’ve had clear night skies. I think this month is the first time I have even seen the Moon in it’s new phase on the first day that it’s visible as well as for the next few nights. I love seeing it when it’s a tiny thin sliver that’s not even a crescent and then watching it gradually grow.
