I'm in Northern Italy. Have a lovely day of sunshine, wander into the garden, plant some seeds. The next morning wake up to either a very hard frost or a foot of snow. Every year I think - I'll wait a little longer before I plant, but then the sun comes out and I can't wait. Really think I have lost all sense of reality - spend the winter collecting the snow into a 2000 litre waterstorage, because here in the summer it is red hot and the garden is desperate for water. Oh for a North Yorkshire summer !!!
