2nd November 2017

With October 2017 having temperatures on average 2 degrees above the norm, it is not surprising that the usual ‘second flush’ in autumn, of wild and garden flowers, was unusually rich this year. Here are Marsh Marigolds, Greater Knapweed and Tansy flowering well on a late October North Yorkshire walk. Conditions: Cloud and sunny intervals. Temperature: Max 11- Min 8C.
