Exactly to the date

Friday 16th April 2010
          Looking back through last years diary I realized that I made a short video of the Purple Saxifrage on Pen-y-ghent on exactly the same date as this years visit (11th April).Taking into account that this years weather as been much colder, does this flower respond to light levels rather than temperature? I've edited the video into a shorter version for todays post.


  1. Loved the video...took me back to my youth hostelling days in the area.

  2. Hi again David, I really love to hear your wonderful yorkshire voice narrating your videos :-D

    Alpines were my first 'plant group love' and although I don't have as many now I always appreciate them when I see them. To see them in a setting like this is would be wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing this. I'll come back to you on this one :-D
