The cowslips think it's spring, in fact they must be convinced that it's spring, but even they must shivering against the frost and the icy cold wintery winds from North. The dyke sides provide a little bit of shelter but still the cold drying winds swirl around and, to top it all, the ground is absolutely bone dry. Only the nightly dewfall gives the crops and plants a drink.
There's no sign of warmth and there's definitely no sign of rain, the wheat fields have cracks running through them, ready for the rain you'd presume. If the farmers are cultivating the land a dust storm follows the tractors and those farms adjacent to the big drains and lodes are irrigating using pumps to water the crops.
In the dykes there are signs of summer with the flowering water weeds blossoming but they're going to need water soon before they die back because of the dryness. The big question is, is it climate or weather?
