Pictures from the garden today.
Next weekend it will probably rain and then next week cold and snow again.

Winter in Goa!
A bit cooler than home, only getting to around 30oC but I can put up with that  ;D

A very unusual February here north of Copenhagen. 8 degrees C, sunshine and no snow in the forecast for the rest of the month. The minimum temperature in my garden this winter is only minus 5,4 degrees C. The average of the last 10 years is minus 11,5 degrees C, and increasing, which to my surprise places my garden in USDA zone 8. I have plotted the lowest minimum temperatures for the last 10 years, and a bit of extrapolation indicates that my garden will be subtropical (zone 10) by 2035 and tropical somewhere around 2060  ;D

Pleasant. mild day in Aberdeen today - with honey bees and bumble bees in evidence, workingthe  ear;y flowers.
This from the local newspaper online ....

A record temperature set in Aberdeen 122 years ago today has been broken in Aboyne (a town further inland on the  River Dee) today.

The Scottish record for the highest temperature in February of 17.9C (64.22F) was set in the city on February 22 in 1897.

However, the Met Office has confirmed Aboyne broke the record with 18.3C at 13.39pm.

At that time, Kinloss had the second highest temperature in Scotland at 16.6C.

The Met Office said: “At 13.39pm the temperature in Aboyne in Scotland reached 18.3C, which breaks the record last reached in Aberdeen on February 22 1897.”

Well into the 20's today on the south facing paving after a night frost. Lets hope there is still some heat in the brick wall by morning to protect the apricot which is well in flower. Lost most of the fruit last year with a late frost, having had a bucket full the previous year. Several bees around and the rain water butt is quite warm.
