Is it spring? By April 5th it will be …

There were plenty of bees up on the dandelions on Brighton Greenway at our last work day on 1st March. Red campion and centaurea plants were growing strongly. But even if the forecast bad weather (Storm Jorge) didn’t really materialise, it didn’t really feel like spring …

But is it in fact spring already? This year, it has been relatively warm but very, very damp and windy. There are daffodils on Brighton Greenway and the snowdrops are already over. I had always assumed ‘spring’ started on 1st March, but more properly, it should be counted from the Spring Equinox (night of 20th March).

Our next work day will be the real ‘spring’ one: on SUNDAY 5th April 12 midday – 3pm. Come along and see what’s growing then!
