Now is the time for the hardy to ski in the morning and swim in the afternoon!

Iíve already seen some people swimming in the sea but itís still much too cold for me.

Hard to believe but the slopes at Alto Sangro are still open and skiable.
Shuts after tomorrow though so last chance for another year.

 To us one of the beauties of being retired or is it living in Italy and being able to get outside more? As chilly as the wind is today we had breakfast out there and spotted our first hoopoe of the year, amazingly enough trying to chase off a Kestrel sitting at the top of an acacia. Swallows were first seen here on the 13 March, followed by House Martins on the 28th, but no Swifts until this morning! So a great morning so far for new arrivals, just need a little rise in temperature now.

Was very surprised to see the swallows/swifts last week. I allways mean to make a note of the first sighting and allways forget. The fluctuation of temperature is amazing though. From sunbathing to hot water bottle, log fire and blanket in the space of a couple of hours.

I ship all my smartphone photos off to Google, and one little favour they do me is to ask if I'd like to see what I was doing on today's date, last year.

I looked to see what I'd been up to, and found pics of a friend, in a tee-shirt, enjoying the first ice cream of 2017! We were visiting the local agricultural show, and it was an absolutely fantastic day - sunny, and 23 degrees.

What a difference a year makes. Today I had taken advantage of the stiff breeze to hang out a blanket on the washing line, only to have to dash out and retrieve it just before a cloudburst arrived. Ugh.

 I have a suspicion Accuweather get their weather from Il Meteo, but a day or so behind!

There is another cold snap forecast for next week, time to tuck up tender plants and any seedlings.

Not again! It's been great recently being outside in the sunny, warm weather, pruning the olive trees, hacking the walnut and fig trees etc.

 Il Meteo says quite a bit of snow Weds, Thurs and Fri, but AccuWeather reports just rain. Doh  ::)

Not too sure how accurate they are, but Accuweather here give historic monthly details. Picked L'Aquila simply because it always seems colder... :-X
