The weather is very dry and hot which, is affecting the growth on the croft. The fruit trees have very little blossom and the fruit are not setting due to the cold frosts at night. The bluebell display is very poor because of the dry conditions. Usually, by this time of year, the meadow is covered in flowers. This is rather disappointing. It will certainly have an impact on the bees and butterfly numbers, this year.
This month has been quite dry and growth is slow on the croft.
