It's meant to be winter !

January 7th. Surely it should be cold, but not this year.
The Herons at Willen are attending their nests and plants don't seem to know what time of year it is.
Hazel Catkins are out....





Bulbs are coming up everywhere, but the most bizarre thing I spotted yesterday where these Orchids coming up on the Bandstand Peninsular at Willen.
 There must be thirty or more in a spot where I have never seen them before. No idea what sort they are, but they must be 3, 4 or even 5 months early.





It will be interesting to see if they get to flower but unfortunately they are in a high traffic area of the park and somewhere the grass is mown short, so it's unlikely they will.
