Against this years Spring trend

CEANOTHUS 

Going against this springs curve, the Blue Ceanothus has actually flowered on time.  A very welcome sign in a year when the spring norm has gone out the window.  No doubt all will catch up in due course… I guess it just adds to the variety of habitat and weather watching.

Today, the 25th May, we have been told that May has been the wettest May on record….  and we still have 6 days of the month left.

A brief change in mood this afternoon…..  Yippeeee!!!

Blue skies and sunshine have indeed been rare across the whole month. So this afternoon we have enjoyed a brief respite from the rain. 

Whatever your weather

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

Spring Greens…….

Spring Greens……  Fresh new leaves, still transparent allowing them to glow in the sun.

Nearly the end of May…another month vanishing into time.  It has also been a strange month.  Lots of rain, some sunshine.  The big plus….. the cold has been replaced by warmer days.

The usual spring indicators have been erratic this year, some signs of spring were early, others yet to show. No doubt it will all correct itself given a little more time.

Strange times for all of us……

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
