February was playing games. It was frosty, it was foggy and it has also been unseasonably sunny and warm.
We have been out in hats coats and gloves and we have been out in shorts and t-shirts.
Plum Blossom is filling the hedgerows with a white bloom, Blackthorn and Hawthorn will soon follow.
Meanwhile Daffodils and Crocus are painting the road sides and gardens. Flashes of colour to fill in between the new growth of trees and bushes.
We have been on some lovely walks, including down Hurst Spit and around the Keyhaven nature reserve.
When the sun has been hot and the tide good, we have been messing about on the river with boats from St. Deny's Boat Club.
March looks set to start with a good old fashioned storm. How it will turn out after that, only time will tell, but I hope the prevailing wind stays Southwesterly.
