This time last year the snowstorm “Beast from the East” was brewing, but today, a year on, couldn’t be any further from that!
Blantyre has basked in 15 degrees today and even warmer in other parts of Scotland. The sun has been trying to get out and if you’re out the wind, it feels rather pleasant. Around the town signs of an early Spring are apparent!
Crocus and snowdrops in full bloom, daffodils sprouting heads, buds appearing on trees, grass growing and weeds starting to sprout! Bluebells racing out the ground and as our photos show, primroses in full bloom well ahead of a usual Easter appearance.
The mild weather is expected to last into next week.
