The photograph above was taken in my back garden on the morning of the 08th of April 2008. (from this post) We had snow in Wexford that morning, it was the first time Dan and Ruth had seen snow. It stayed on the ground for forty minutes.

Today, on a similar date five years later, the same apple tree shows significantly lower levels of growth than seen in the photograph above.

Does this mean that the apple tree will, suddenly, over a very short period accelerate in its growth pattern if conditions change or will it take time?

Will spring ‘catch up’ quickly or when you look at the rings when the tree is cut will 2013 indicate a very cold spring?

I’m banging my head against a wall here – with three ‘prototypical’ flies ready for 2013’s bass fishing season and a range of flies for golden grey mullet sea trout and bream sitting begging to be fished! It will be interesting to see how the next few weeks pan out. Stay sane.
