This morning for anyone up bright and early the BBC broadcast the answer to the climate forecasters who told us to expect an early spring. A daffodil grower from Cornwall told us his crop will be one month late this year. I was relieved to hear it is not just my daffodils taking it easy before springing into life. His crop is still dwarves without flowers so far.
Apparently it is another case of too much weather and too little climate. We just have to be patient and fight our way through the rain and the wrong kind of “wintry showers”, as snow is now called by a Met office that finds it all so difficult to call.
