Happy first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. I went outside a few times this morning, to see if I'd be able to see any part of the solar eclipse. London had solid cloud cover. The day got darker for a while, and then the skies turned a lighter gray again. That was it. By late morning - long after the eclipse was done - we had blue skies and a few wisps of cloud. Lots of flowers blooming, but no real leaves yet.
