The weirdly warm weather means that some plants have never caught on that it’s winter and others are going Spring like early.  The blossoming cherry tree in Argyle Street is sure to attract hordes of homesick Japanese people.  And at the bottom of the Cally Road outside Tesco what might be a hazel (identification welcome) is in full leaf and budding catkins.  Did this one ever lose its leaves or is there a micro climate produced by air vents from the cafe in Tesco?
