On this day

20th April

Night temperatures of -4º, bitter winds and wintry showers. Impossible really to do anything outside with frosty nights.

From my garden journal 1995. I found it in a cupboard while I was looking for something else. Back to 2007 and today's picture is a form of Iris germanica called 'Berkeley Gold'. I spotted it flowering yesterday.
