The English weather in February

 

As I yesterday already said, we had all sorts of weather in the last February days except snow - bright, warming sunshine with blue and cloudy skies, strong storms, bitterly coldness and heavy rain pouring for hours. The paths in the garden were often muddy and slippery, broken branches lay on the grounds, several parts of some gardens were also closed after trees have fallen down - I loved to see the grasses moving in the wind - on the picture bottom right you can see the full moon. Is there any connection between the full moon and the stormy weather?

This is one of your best compilations, Philine!
A good montage Philine, very English.
Lovely! And yes, very English!
Joli patchwork de photos, j'aime beaucoup la photo du ciel en haut à  droite.

Your pictures are very evocative of England in stormy February, Philine. I see we are in for another one, Storm Dennis, this weekend.

The cycles of the moon affect just about everything Philine. If it can regulate the tides, and womens' cycles too, it can do just about everything. Gardeners always plant when the moon is waxing, never waning. Old country lore contains a great deal of underlying wisdom..
Philine: Thank you very much for your very interesting comment, Chris! But I knew that you are a speci in these things.

Your love for the natural world shines through here. I fine selection of pictures.
A fine set of pictures Philine. We are set for another storm on Saturday...Storm Dennis
Philine: Then we'll get this storm, too. We have some damages in our country caused by the last Storm Sabine (=Storm Clara in GB). I wish you a fine day, Bill!
Yes, Philine, I'm sure there IS a connection between the weather and the full moon. The last time I remember a storm this big was in January of 2018 when my brother was visiting us from America. I see that there were at least 11 fatalities across Europe from this one. Something to write home about! So glad you stayed safe...and warm.
Philine: Yes, you are right, we have also some damages from the last storm in our country. I stayed safe, but I caught another cold. Heel bedankt, Ginnie, and stay safe at home! I am sure you have some Dutch friends around you.

That are some great pictures, Philine. By the way you described the weather it is almost like 4 seasons in one day.....
Philine: Dit klopt, I thought sometimes of April as we were there. In Scotland might have been also snow like in the southern parts of our country, for a short time in Hamburg, too, as I heard. The ICE train Amsterdam-Berlin must stop its run. I wish you a good flight to the USA. Heel bedankt, Astrid!
I find it amazing every year at this time to see Europe's spring come about when I have meters of snow in my yard and gardens.

England comes first but the others, in Germany, Holland, France et al, welcome the spring season long before I do in mid-May.
Philine: I understand your difficult situation with meters of snow, but then I think of your wonderful snow images in wintertime. We are longing for a bit of snow, we don't have a real winter. Many thanks, Mary!

That about sums it up
Philine: Many thanks, paul!
Another fine collection of pictures Philine, you really did manage to the mix of conditions we had over here last weekend, sadly we have another lot coming this weekend.
Philine: Yes, I read about the next Storm Dennis. We had some damages from the last storm in our country. Spring temperatures are also forecasted. The world is a bit crazy, indeed. Many thanks, Brian!

You have summed up recent weeks in England very well. I especially like the grasses lower left and your moon image. For the second weekend running, all our planned bike rides have been cancelled because of the storms. However, me and my friend Davina will be heading out regardless smile
