Two sunny early spring days in a row... It's a bit intoxicating, after such a dismal winter. Never mind the brimstone butterflies in the garden, and the platoons of ladybirds emerging from the eaves of our house: I spotted the first shirtless men in the garden of our nearest pub, showing off their tattooed "sleeves". Weird. You could see the goosebumps even through the ink... Careful, guys: cast not a clout 'til May (or, more likely, June) be out, and even then do keep a vest on, please. I blame that Vladimir Putin.
