Looking good now
This beautiful American sweetgum is still aflutter with orange, butter yellow, coral, crimson and deep mulberry coloured leaves, each with five sharply-pointed lobes.

December 2011

2011 ended with almost average rainfall for December with 47.2mm falling in total. The wettest day was on the 23rd with 7.9mm.

This rainfall did not manage to prevent the year from being very dry indeed with the annual total amounting to just 380.4mm, making 2011 the second driest year since 1900.
It was a mild month with three days when the Temperature reached 13c and fifteen days when the max was in double figures, there was a brief fall of wet snow on the 16th but with mild ground temps it thawed very readily.
