How late is this 'spring'?

Just me looking for the pruners (again).

I know I left them somewhere. But you can't find 'em when you need 'em can you?

Back in the day all the triffids would by now have been full-grown tripodmarsis hgwellsia.

Today here it's been mostly sun and wind, sleet and drizzle, warm and cold.

i.e. April

Portnoy's Complaint is just a mild concern compared with the non-procession of the jet stream and the gulf stream's decline artjak.

I recall the winter of 62/3 but as I wasn't an earth-prodder then, I wasn't bovvered.

I'm in Suffolk and nothing more than a casual gardener but I can't recall a later spring than this one. Everything bar the chestnut tree candles appears to be about a month late.

Am I wrong?

No plum blossom

My plum (victoria) has been happy for ~15-20 years.

Last spring ('12) the late frosts did for all but about one pound of crops.

This year ('13) - not a sausage. No blooms - nothing. The foliage is lovely and healthy though.

I'll give it another five years before I decide whether or not to execute or not though.
