Weird Weather

snow on allotment Dec 15

We have had some weird and changeable weather over thee past week. Last weekend, we were hit by snow. It remained on the ground for 2 days and as a result, Pinkie's appearance at a local fair was cancelled. She was due to make an appearance cunningly disguised as a reindeer.

Since then we have had, what is for December, a mini heatwave with temperatures normally expected in May. All our bee hives were active on Wednesday, though there wasn't much for the bees to forage. The heat continues though so does the mud on the allotment.
