Thursday ~ 5th April

We've been unseasonably warm until a cold front pushed in today - rainy and cool again. Strangest Spring that I've experienced in ages!

The Oak trees are nearly 100% leafed out now. Dogwoods and other flowering trees are in full bloom.
Flowering Dogwoods both white and pink.

There is still a heavy concentrate of pollen in the air so I'm still stuffy and breathing is not comfortable outside. So I'm hoping for more rain to help clean it out of the air.


  1. I have two dogwood bushes outside my back door - ony had them a year so still quite small. They have just come into leaf though.


Whatever the weather where you are - thank you for adding your thoughts!
