Looking Good 15 April 2019||posted: 15/4/2019 at 08:31:06 |
Is our weather changing? I looked back at what I wrote on our web site nine years after we started our garden at Bocombe. I came to the conclusion (History of the Garden, 2nd paragraph “…..even in the Meadow bottom the first frost is often not until late November or early December, and the frosts gone entirely by early April. Frost is less of a problem above the walled bank, though, of course, it does occur!”|
After this last winter, which was hardly a winter to be recognised as such, we now have very late frosts, and up above the walled bank too! Night after night in mid April… To counter this I don’t think we had a frost at all until mid January… then only two nights!
What does it all mean? My recollections are not a statistical record. Perhaps it’s why we talk about the weather so much in the UK. The out-of-the-ordinary is just the norm….
