An Outbreak of Dryness

This was our rainfall in February:

90356824_2873522476046436_2079685656497356800_n

and this was our rainfall for the first nineteen days of March:

March 1 rain

and then over the last four days something very strange has happened:

March 2 rain

There has been a frost the last couple of nights but, rather surprisingly, by mid-morning our bees have been out and about visiting the Hellebores
