February 2015

February has been a pretty average month overall. We have had average maximums between 11.5°C and 3.4°C, minimums between 6.2°C and -2.6°C and rainfall measuring 31.0mm. These all create a very average month. We had 10 air frosts and 22 ground frosts.
However we did (finally) get some snow! Snow fell on three days in the first week of February, and lay on the ground for two days. The heaviest snowfall measured 3.8cm. This made for some beautiful scenery in the garden and surrounding Cambridge and everyone enjoyed the Winter Garden and snowdrops under the snowfall.

March will bring the Garden some more colour, but for now the Snowdrops, Sarcococca and Daphne keep us company on these chilly afternoons!
