In about February/March when everybody here was complaining about the snow I kept saying "None here, yet. We'll probably get the lambing snow in late April/early May when the hill sheep lamb."
Well, on the hills has come the snow & Ben Wyvis (about 3,400 ft) which we see from the back of the house had lost almost all of it's winter snow - now it's white again!
Last night I went out, we were roughly at sea level, the temp went down to 1c & it was sleeting!! The lambs didn't look too chuffed either.
It's about 8c now & cloudy with the odd light shower, but a cold wind. At this rate I'll be hardening things off still in August......
