April Showers Bring May Flowers...Unless you're in Finland. Then April showers may just as well mean snow and sleet... That's what happened when these pictures were taken: it was snowing rather than raining, but at least the snow, or sleet, seemed to melt as soon as it hit the ground. For the most part at least.
Anyway, I was really glad I hadn't packed away this down jacket yet, along with my other winter wear. And now I think I might just keep it around, just in case. If I remember correctly, there were a few really cold days in early June last year...
So, this is mixing spring clothes with winter wear, sort of...It was 6ºC / 43ºF, and I believe in dressing for the weather. I was happy with my choice of outerwear, but when it started raining, or snowing, I wished I'd had shoes that were more appropriate for sleet (in case you're lucky enough to live somewhere with a milder climate and are therefore not familiar with various types of snow: sleet is wet snow, or something disgustingly wet that is not quite rain nor quite snow). Oh well, maybe we're lucky and the weather will change soon...

Any April showers in your part of the world?
