A Change…but not for the Better!


Big Wood, Allestree

All good things must come to an end (or maybe for a short pause!)… after several weeks of fabulous sunny spring weather that magically changed into summer, there has been a distinct change.  Heavy dark clouds and a temperature drop.

So this mornings walk thru the woods was very dark only the bright fresh green on new ferns broke the sombre pallet of the Pines.   On the positive side….it didn’t rain.


It has now been confirmed that May was both the warmest and driest since (I think they said) 1912

4th May
