A bit of sun would be nice

The wind that is blowing from the North at the moment, is not only carrying the cloud of volcanic ash that I mentioned two days ago, but is also bringing some pretty chilly weather.

After a long, wet winter we did not really see the first sustained period of sunshine until the beginning of April, but unfortunately that didn't last too long. The first days of May have been cool and changeable - the maximum daytime temperatures this week are between 16°C and 18°C (only 60°/64°F), with the nights a good deal cooler.

The next few weeks will see the flowering in our vineyards, and for this to be healthy and even, we really need a week or two or warm sunshine. We have our fingers crossed.
