Not too bad a day at all today; noticeably warmer than of late with a nice bit of sunshine too!
My trusty garden thermometer outside the back kitchen door was showing 12c at 1 o’clock. The minimum temperature it recorded over the winter was only -2c, so that’s not that cold really. That said, if it’s around 4c and you’re down on the promenade on a windy day it doesn’t half feel chilly! I’m presuming things’ll start to warm up now through the month, though Sunday night/Monday morning will be down to around 3c (I’m addicted to the weather forecast).
Due to the hard work of the volunteers at Hoylake & Meols in Bloom and a helping hand from Mother Nature, the spring flowers are popping-up right now throughout Hoylake. You’ll see daffodils in many a grass verge throughout the village and especially near The Quadrant. I snapped the cluster pictured above down in Meols Parade Gardens earlier. I haven’t checked yet but the snowdrops will have probably made an appearance by now in the Monkey Woods. I’ve seen a few crocus flowering and some other flowers that I probably should be able to put a name to but can’t.
Enjoy the warmer weekend!
