It’s wonderful to hear from the forecasters that after the fabulous BBQ summer and the mild winter we are now hurtling towards the early spring. It’s just a pity that could be on our snow sledge in near freezing temperatures! The forecasters seem to specialise in winding us up these days.
However, as readers of this site will know, this is just weather, not climate. The problem is we seem to get a lot of weather these days, with two snowfilled winters in succession and a cold wet summer in between. There’s no sign of any of my daffodils appearing from the soil as they clearly could not hear the message about early spring for all the snow there’s been on top of them.
