Last winter in the UK was really mild. I haven’t seen snow at all. Temperature was hovering around 5-10 C deg. It incured faster vegetation period. Moreover during the late march and early april temperatures in England were high, sometimes higher than 20 C deg. (Pic.1). Thanks to this we could enjoy a really nice spring.
Pic. 1 The temperature 2m above ground on Sunday April 9th at 15 UTC. In Cambridgeshire area was 20 C deg. (modellzentrale.de). Previous dry spell with high temperature was around 1st April.
Below you can see many photos both from first greening of spring in Cambridge and the period of flowering trees, which looks amazing through my camera Nikon D5300. I used makro to enhance the details of blooming plants and trees.
