Spring is a season that means people buy things, the logic goes that this happens usually about easter time. The trouble is that easter* moves so an early easter which happened this year does not mean spring. This is a lesson not taught in commerce. While bbq and gardening are associated with spring and summer its certainly has not been plant weather or cooking outside** in it.
I note that the month of may is apparently spring and i should now be buying my fireworks and our haloween outfit (my blog). Anyhow its good to note that weather is not boring if a little unpredicatble and a bit cold.
* the implications for religion i leave for others to ponder ** we have been but then the monkey house is a bit bonkers
