thanks eric and j. andrew - i'm glad you can feel it and yes jal - the hail on Palm Sunday - it does produce that foreshadowing - as to trying for this - i didn't have to - nature did it for me - i just made the observation and played with it for a while - around here some villages have a donkey walk the streets to church on Palm Sunday - often carying a child - followed by a small procession - this in the hail - heavy hail as it became at certain times of the day - is a more striking image perhaps than the wheelbarrow but the wheelbarrow with hail in its bottom on Palm Sunday just seemed right in its understatement its just being...

the daffodils under our willow-tree are looking decidely forlorn this morning after yesterdays battering from the elements.
your ku sums up the situation very nicely.
right now (8.20 am BST Monday morning) there is clear blue sky out of my window so maybe things will pick up.
