Early Blossom

Blossom on the pear tree was over last week and that on the apple tree has nearly all fallen now. Things were much the same last year, but a decade or so ago the apple blossom would have still been in bud at this time of year. I leave my readers to draw their own conlusions.

Climate Change

There are eleven radiators in my house. During last Winter four of them were not used at all, two were used only occasionally and one was on a low setting. That is yet another sign of a warmer climate.

Ill Timed Sleepiness

In recent months I've tended to be sleepy in the afternoons, often nodding off even while reading. I then resolve to go to bed a little earlier. However as bedtime approaches and I potter about on the computer I become wide awake and don't feel at all ready for bed. I wonder if this perverse misplacing of sleepiness and wakefulness is common.
