Diary 2017

January 15th

The warm weather of Austum 2016 has given way to much colder snaps with the occasional persistent frost lasting more than one day. This was not at all unusual for pevious decades but mild almost frost-free winters have become commoner. The usual winter planst can be seen such as Lamium hybridum and Lamium purpureum but this yera with fewer hangers on from summer. Southern counties are reporting Snowdrop flowers and I have one preort of buds from Darwen in north Lancashire. No sign at all in our garden.
