Perfect growing conditions. Our mild winter and warm spring gave the vegetation in woods and the wider countryside a great start to the year.
Add the rains of recent days, plus yesterdays warm sunshine and there has been a green explosion…. yep, the growth has been given a blast of the ‘supercharger’.
The truth is that whilst we did have some rain we do need a good deal more. Areas are tinder dry, the ground hard and water levels in reservoirs exceptionally low.
So much as we love warm dry sunny days, the reality is, that it may just be a luxury we need to forego.
