Long-Term Weather Forecast

Alasdair Thornton writes, "Ever heard the old rhyme 'If the oak before the ash, then we'll only have a splash, if the ash before the oak, then we'll surely have a soak'?

"If it's to be believed we could be in for a pretty dry summer, as these pictures from Ormsaigbeg will attest.

"This ash at Annbank is a couple of weeks behind the....

"....wind-stunted oaks beyond the driveway to Coimh Lionadh a little further along the road."

Many thanks for this, Alasdair. We sincerely hope the old saying is right.
