We were just sitting out in the garden, enjoying the lovely sunny evening, and drinking tea (Yorkshire Tea, obviously).

"The swallows are late this year," I said. "I've seen them elsewhere, but they haven't made it into the hills yet."

Ten seconds later: "Swallow!"

Not quite enough to make a summer, but we're getting there.
