A recent report in The Times claims that the average rainfall in the UK for January at 185 mm was the highest since records began a couple of centuries ago. That's a lot of water but not as much as the 300.2 mm our Parish Weatherman recorded for the same period proving, if proof were needed, that Cornwall is a wet place!
Notwithstanding the lousy weather, Spring is definitely here and we are seeing a little colour in the garden from a few flowers. Growth will accelerate from now on and we are heading into the very best period for our patch - it's definitely a Spring garden.
|That's it: three pathetic daffodils and they are still in bud. But there are several hundred more to come (assuming they all come up, which is not a given because of the extremely wet Winter we've just had).|
