Silly Season

Spotted this full rainbow over Waterloo bridge on my way home on Wednesday.

Last night the evening rush hour coincided with what was practically the first protracted sunny spell in all of May. The public response was rapid and frantic: pubs were overflowing onto pavements everywhere, while open-top cars paraded along the Strand. The rain is back with a vengeance this morning. It's been the only month of above average rainfall out of the last nine.

The silly season is almost underway. News that bird flu is starting to jump between humans is already being shunted several pages inside the newspapers, and soon it will take a catastrophe of truly global proportions to prize public attention away from the World Cup.
