The Week in Botany
Even though I put dates in the subject line each week, October has taken me by surprise. I notice the nights getting darker, but it’s felt solidly grey since around August. The plants in the garden show no real sign of reacting to the shorter days yet.
However, you can’t ignore time forever, and Fresher’s Flu is a reminder that autumn has returned to the Northern Hemisphere. I can feel my throat just starting to go. Fortunately, it’s not COVID.
Assuming it doesn’t develop into something serious, I’ll be back with another selection of stories shared by people following @BotanyOne on Twitter at the same time next week.
