  1. Palm trees and snow! πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      I know. Weird.

    Just charging my phone battery at the hotel while I wait for himself to leap out of bed. Warmer but somewhat damp here in Jerez. Undeterred xx

      Supposed to turn to rain tomorrow, but looking at my poor plants in the deep freeze I think I am going to have to start again this year.

        Good job you like gardening πŸ™‚

    Like Lynette, I was also thinking palm trees in the snow. A very ‘English’ image, Jude.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      Still hanging around Pete, though no more snow as yet. White skies though 😦

    Love it! Apricity is a new one on mee!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Apparently a very old word which went out of fashion.

      1. Sue says:

        Must have been, it’s not in my dictionary!

        1. Heyjude says:

          No. it doesn’t appear in the Oxford dictionary, apricity (thanks to the Merriam-Webster) β€˜appears to have entered our language in 1623, when Henry Cockeram recorded (or possibly invented) it for his dictionary The English Dictionary; or, An Interpreter of Hard English Words.’

  5. It might not be warm but it is certainly pretty. I love seeing all the snow photos and reports on the TV, without having to actually be in it. πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      Snow is always lovely if you don’t have to go out in it, although I usually do if only to get some photos. Fortunately here I just have to open a window πŸ™‚

    That view is beautiful in any weather.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I prefer it greener, but yes it is a lovely view.

      1. Anabel Marsh says:

        I would too, especially if I was going out into it!

  7. pommepal says:

    Not come across that word before Jude. It certainly doesn’t look too warm, despite the sun.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Even colder today with no sun…

  8. Lucid Gypsy says:

    Any warmer today Jude? It’s a bit drippy here. Thanks for the new old word!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Drippy, windy and cold. And grey 😦

  9. Joanne Sisco says:

    Nope – doesn’t look warm at all … and I agree about the weird combination of palm trees and snow.
    Plus I’ve learned a new word!

    1. Heyjude says:

      It’s a fabulous word and deserves to be used again. Must be plenty of opportunities in your part of the world!

      1. Joanne Sisco says:

        Yup – I definitely would!

  10. During the apricity did you see any apricots in your city?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Not a one!
