Note for Sunday 11th
It obviously couldn’t last and today there was much more cloud and a cool easterly breeze but still a pleasant April day.
From 02 Weather 2010
Our greenhouse grapevine has started to shoot but the 2 vines outside on the plot have still to burst into growth. As they both have buds which are looking green I’m assuming the young plants have survived the cold winter on the plot.

Note for Saturday 10th
Warmer still
It was just like summer today with almost unbroken sunshine and a high of 18.9°C the warmest day since last October.
Note for Friday 9th
Warmest this year
Today was the warmest day of the year with the afternoon temperature reaching 16.9°C. It wasn’t as sunny as yesterday with varying amounts of cloud. It was a still day making it excellent for sowing parsnip seeds which can all too easily be blown away on the slightest breeze.
On each visit to the plot we inspect our broccoli and cauliflowers for signs of our first pickings of the year. Our broccoli seems reluctant to produce spears at the moment.

Note for Thursday 8th
It was sunny all day today. It felt pleasant in the sunshine if just a bit breezy at times in the afternoon.
Note for Wednesday 7th
Light overnight rain continued into the morning. The rest of the day brightened up with short sunny spells but occasional spells of light drizzle. The day had a mild feel about it.
On the plot our new pear tree “Red Williams” has flower buds.

Note for Tuesday 6th
It was a mild and cloudy day with only a few brief sunny intervals.
Note for Monday 5th
Breezy again
A damp morning with some drizzle but no measurable rainfall to note. The afternoon was brighter with brief sunny spells. A rather breezy afternoon took the edge of the temperature.
Our pansies have survived the winter even managing to give us some flowers during the worst of the winter weather. Now they are in full bloom. It is video and not photographs as I wanted to test out my video camera using a small tripod. There are some tell tale signs if you look closely.
