I think of them as ‘Easter skies’ – that combination of cold air, bright light, and the hue of fresh green as the trees begin to bud.
It’s not unusual for April to be winter-like, even though we are past the spring equinox and the light has an entirely different power. To my mind, the coming spring literally ‘shoots’ its presence into the skies, giving a dramatic life-colour to the more barren blues and silvers; wonderful in their own right, but nothing compared to the emotional effect of the three together.
‘Hang on,’ it seems to say. We’re nearly there…
