Wet!

Tuesday, May 13th 2014

Someone has forgotten to tell the weather that it is May not April, so we should not be having April Showers! Or should that be downpours?  The reserve is extremely wet with every hollow and ditch full of water.  However the rain drops on the grass are attractive.

Despite the wet and cool weather, newly opened flowers are appearing almost daily.  Sweet Woodruff, Sycamore, Rowan and Apple (shown below) have all joined the list on the observation board.

Unfortunately one flower that has not yet blossomed is Hawthorn, although it is in flower outside Foxglove.  So for those of us working at Foxglove we are unable to 'cast a clout' just yet!
