Is it a derserved reputation ?
Not generally, but certainly this year. Weatherwise it has been a mild month as the rest of this winter. Signs of the spring is everywhere by the end of the month. I troddle along in my everydaylife.
The snowdrops in the garden is in full bloom and have been for most of the month.
February produced a snowy sunday.....
.....but generally mild, springlike weather for my walks by the coast.
I have in fact been able to wear trainers that are not made for bare streets all winter. It is not only me reacting to the mild winter. It a constant topic in the media.
