Mid-January and already the days are slowly getting longer. There has been a great deal of unsettled weather, but so far we have been spared the dramatic storms and constant heavy rain of the past two winters. It remains to be seen what the next few months will bring before the first acid yellow-greens of new growth start to punctuate the russet colours of autumn and winter as a prelude to the approach of spring.
