Spring is sprung, the grass is riz

A spring outing of the Royal Anglesey sailing club, by the pier, on the Menai Strait

Spring is Sprung

Spring is sprung
The grass is riz
Except where every mole-hill is!
Along the Straits
The yachts all wizz
Serious stuff this racing bizz!

‘Spring is sprung’ with remarkable speed. The greenery is vivid and sudden, with the new laurel hedging at Coed y Berclas sprouting forth.

We have been having lovely weather for the past couple of weeks with the mountains changing as the sun moves throughout the day: one of my favourites is the gentle, warm pink/orange glow which suffuses them towards sunset. The wind has vered from NE to SW which tends to alter the general temperature, but as long as the sun is shining, it feels wonderful.

At last… hope summer will be like this!
