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.
