Last snowdrops of the year

Posted in: Comment, News and Updates

These should more properly be the first snowdrops of 2012, I suppose, but given that they are in bloom at the University in December, that seems premature – or precocious, maybe – possibly like the snowdrops themselves.  Some will cite this as more evidence of global warming; others, likely university managers, will see it as a metaphor for the institution's hothouse atmosphere.  But careful observation over some years reveals that, come snow, frost, or balmy south westerlies, these particular snowdrops always bloom in December: more nature than nurture, then.  Just goes to show the value of a bit of empirical evidence.
