West Kensington and Hammersmith Update

Well, the Ground Elder (Aegopodium podagraria) foliage has survived the winter so far, after putting forth new growth at the end of November. The Daffodils (Narcissus sp.) have started showing green and are around 1-2 inches high.

What has slightly surprised me is the realisation that both Silver Birch (Betula pendula) and Weeping Willow (Salix x sepulcralis) hang onto their (dead) leaves through the winter. cuvalwen and myself sat under a Weeping Willow on Saturday night and there was quite a bit of brown foliage hanging down.

It is a beautiful day today. The sky is a pale blue and it is a little hazy. It is mild at the moment (10oC) with a slight breeze from the west.
