Well it’s been a month of contrasting weather over here in our little corner of West Yorkshire, a lot of stuff has been flung at us. Being high up in the Pennines, the Colne Valley has a slightly different weather system even to Huddersfield, our town to the east of us, and Oldham a few miles further west.
To say February is a shorter month, it can also be quite severe. Although finally lighter nights are coming, and I am noticing dawn breaking when I’m off to work, and birdsong. Buds are sprutting on trees and bushes and all our spring bulbs are shooting through.
We had some hailstorms earlier in the month, my garden got quite white at times
