The UK is experiencing a relative heatwave as Christmas approaches. This is good news for most of us but very bad news for many as warm weather in winter here in the UK means wet weather, and some parts of the country are suffering from terrible floods. Here in my garden the grass has continued to grow, so for the first time ever I was out yesterday (December 22nd 2015) mowing the lawn!! Some daffodils I had outside in pots awaiting spring to flower are just about to flower right now. To top it all, while I was outside today (23rd) doing some weeding there was a large bumble bee inspecting holes in the garden wall which is what they usually do in late spring when looking for a place to make a nest.
