Suddenly it’s hot

Temperature in 10 days gone from 12C (53F)  to 27C (81F) and everything has suddenly started  flowering.

Today we spotted a single Common Bistort (Persicaria bistorta / Polygonium bistorta).  This is very localised on the edge of the wood and seems to move a little each year but is not expanding.  We were expecting it to either spread, or disappear being isolated.
