Back in Westminster - where the weather is still springlike - with bluebells and wild flowers all over the parks, as friends tell me it is snowing in Northumberland.
There is no question that the climate is changing - we are clearly in a drought, albeit we are probably heading for a wet summer. My plan is to hike the Pennine Way this August as part of my holiday and also as the summer tour of the west and south of Northumberland. Doubtless it will lash down with rain and snow!
