Summer weather prediction - there is a saying which predicts the amount of rain we’ll have in the coming summer based on the order the leaves first appear on the trees in the spring. ‘Ash before oak, in for a soak. Oak before ash, in for a splash’. Oak tree is in the foreground with budding leaves. The pale trunks of ash tree behind, no leaves out yet. Looks like we’ll just see a splash of rain this summer!

The Holt-Wilson's organic farm in Monmouthshire
To support Raglan Primary School PTA’s Grow a Pound, we are opening up our farm on Sunday 15 April, 10am-3pm. The kids have created a map (on sale for £1) to lead you to our ancient wood and its spring flowers, highlighting a few adventures to have on the way.
