It's really "unseasonal" at present - daffodils out, also camellias, crocuses and even a rhododendron. The magnolia in front of Kenwood House is coming on apace. I've even seen the first APPLE BLOSSOM(!) on a tree. And yet we are still not out of January. So, with the sun not yet high enough to warm things, it shows how warm the weather has been. I recall that we were nearly as advanced last year, but then a cold snap came in February.
Could it be the first of many such Januaries to come in the future, or is it just another one off?
Whatever, it certainly is great to be amazed every day by things being wrong and working out.
