On this day!


In the first week of December 1949 the Gloucestershire Echo published this article about unseasonal blossom! We transcribe it here by kind permission of The British Newspaper Archives. 

"Purple Rhododendrons are in full bloom at Dunwich, East Suffolk, and at Walberswick, a nearby village, strawberries, pears, apples, and sloes are in bloom."
