They Call it Summer




Whew!! Finally Summer is here.....


I moved recently to UK from India....it was like coming from a boiling pot to a freezer...
I landed here in September when you could still call a day a day and night a night....so it was not too tough to settle down...Weatherwise too it was mild then and quite a bit like India in the beginning of winters..
As winter approached and trees turned bare...the days started becoming shorter and the cold fierce...
To top it all the University campus is away from the city on a hillock...with breathtaking views of meadows and rolling grasslands...
Being so used to seeing the sun rise and set at certain times...at first it was weird to see the sun rising at 9 am and setting at 3pm.
Even though I prefer cold to any other weather it was bone numbing...and the famous british rain...which can pour down at any given time...
After surviving the first british winter I am definitely looking forward to the summer....



The hint of summer is already here....the days are now longer...and we still have sunlight at dinnertime..with the sun setting at 8.30pm.
There is a splash of colour in the gardens and pathways are lined with Yellow and White Daffodils...
I had always read about the Brits being famous for discussing weather everytime they met...
I guess the unpredicatble climate makes them do it....
So being here how could I miss an opportunity to talk about it too....
