The weather was calm, but very, very wet. The world was blanketed in dense Scotch mist, and everything was dripping, dripping, dripping…

Algy flew into his assistants’ garden, to find some daffodils for all his friends at Easter time. Many flowers had been broken in the gales, and he started to collect them up carefully, but there were plenty still standing; it made Algy happy to see their pretty, wet heads nodding at him gently in the constant drizzle.

Algy hopes that you will all have a peaceful and happy Easter weekend and will find some lovely flowers, even if the weather is grey or cold or wet (or all three!) where you are too. Happy spring, everyone in the northern hemisphere! xoxo

The fine weather didn’t last, of course. The clouds rolling in from the ocean pulled a great blind across the sky, and all the shadows faded away, so that everything suddenly seemed dull and listless. It wasn’t long before it started to rain: just a very light drizzle at first, with a gentle drop here and a gentle drop there. Algy knew that the rain would quickly grow heavier, and the wind stronger, but in the meantime it was not entirely unpleasant, albeit somewhat damp. So he found himself a sheltered spot underneath a stand of Marram grass at the edge of the dunes, and perched there for a while, watching the raindrops begin to fall…
