Ireland summer delayed – No May blossoms yet

And too wet to plow.

22 May 2018 – “Ice Age Now readers may be interested to know that here in Ireland we seem to be about 3 weeks behind in the season,” says reader David Loring.

“My neighbour has been unable to plough as it has been too wet and the first cut of silage which should have happened by now has not because there has not been enough growth in the grass. It is looking doubtful if there will be a second cut this year, if there is a first cut,  which means Ireland next winter may have an even worse fodder crisis than over this last winter.

“We have only hit 20 deg C (68 F) twice this year and here we are at the end of May with some trees only just now beginning to leaf up.

“The hawthorns, normally a mass of white by now have no blossom yet. The first picture (above) is May 21st last year.
