Depressed by the Budget? As bluebells flower gloriously across Britain, remember the best things in life are free

24th April 2009

 

Older heads may be full of worries and woes. But as this little girl has discovered, Mother Nature can still give everyone a reason to smile. 

One-year-old Nia Thomas was out with her parents when she instinctively made a beeline for this spectacular mass of bluebells.

As the sun streamed down through her blonde hair she plucked one then sat transfixed by it.

This year there has been a bumper crop of the sweet-scented flowers across Britain.

Into every life a little rain must fall, however, and this idyllic scene in the Cefn Onn country park in Cardiff could be one of the last images of sunny spring we see for a while.

This weekend, temperatures - which have been as high as 70f (21c) in the last few days - are expected to drop to only 56f (12c).

Much of Britain will see grey skies and showers which will last into early next week.

But there is good news for contestants in tomorrow's London marathon.

A Met Office spokesman said: 'The maximum temperatures we will see are around 15f, which is reasonable if you are running. It should stay that way for much of the afternoon. Perfect conditions for any stragglers.'

The East of England will have a reprieve, enjoying temperatures in the late teens.

But from today it all goes downhill, as the South-West will see heavy downpours and temperatures falling to just 13c.

The North-East will experience a little sunshine, but overcast weather should arrive in late afternoon.

The forecast is gloomy news after this week's glorious weather.
