Daffodils at All Saints Church, Godshill. Picture by Jennifer Burton.
SIGNS of spring have already sprung up around the Isle of Wight.
In Godshill these daffodils have brought some brightness to a bank outside All Saints Church.
Gardeners have also reported seeing caterpillars weeks earlier than expected, while flowers including geraniums and trees such as hazels have bloomed early.

The polar vortex has gone South to the USA again so its game on for the storms again I am afraid. Lets hope that they miss us this time, which is possible. Next week the jet stream will do its business again.Must point out that I am not an expert in weather forecasting, just a bit interested in the more nasty sorts weather in a geekish sort of way LOLLike I said shredded Daffodils(sorry)

A chipmunk on the run in Shanklin. A daffodil spotted in Godshill. Caterpillars a week earlier than expected. Rumours of an actual news story at the IWCP offices . . . strange times.

Russell "Still think this Summer will be like 1976....we will see". I look forward to the re-run of some of those 1976 summer movies :) Rocky. Silver Streak. Pink Panther. The Enforcer etc ;) But not sure I could cope with yet another re-run of The Rocky Horror Picture Show that had a re-release in '76. I mean just watching clips of this is enough to drive anybody insane, and quite why anybody would want to film someone dressed up as Riff Raff and post it to YouTube for the world to see is beyond me, but hey that's double standards for you, but I do look forward to decent music again, and no way can we have a hosepipe ban this summer, I mean come on!!!!

The weather is still on a windy rainy pattern "they say". Next week it will get bad again according to some of the weather agency's computer models, so I think we will see more daffodils, but they might get blown to bits LOLYou know what when Spring does actually get here, in March I bet it snows then just to rub it in LOLStill think this Summer will be like 1976....we will see.

I saw a caterpillar on Sunday. No it was not a large yellow dump truck, it was green.
