cherry blossom time

25 Feb

london 2.19pm 5.2C sunny sunday 2018

cherry blossoms coming out , even though we are forecast to have a really cold spell coming next week.

practically all the cherry blossom trees in london are sterile. they dont produce cherries. i used to wonder why they all flower at this time, when there are no insects around to pollinate them, but of course i should realise that they are bred for their ornamental flowers and have long divorced themselves from reproduction. this is selective breeding. 

added. 7.07am monday 26.2.18 0.7C cloudy 

yesterday’s high 3.8C low 0.3C . it seems london lows occur around 7am.
