Is everyone else as late as me in sowing their seeds this year ?

Everything seems to be behind - the trees are barely in bud, when they should be in leaf by now surely. The ground is still clammy instead of light and warm - has it really been so cold and wet ?

Yes but in my case I canít blame the weather

My peach tree is now in full blossom, which it normally does in late February. Summer bird migrants were late with chiff chaffs two weeks, blackcaps and swallow about a week.

The first three months of this year produced 184.1mm of rainfall compared with 158.2mm for the same period last year at Rhode Hill. What probably gives the impression that it has been a lot wetter is the fact that being colder with less sunshine the ground has not been drying out so well. Incidentally for this three-month period last year was the driest and this year the second driest over the first seven years of the new millennium.

I hope to post details of the differences in temperatures over recent winters but it will take a while inputting the data.

There is a website with Uplyme rainfall data at:
