I put out the moth trap on Monday evening. But with a minimum overnight temperature of 0.5 degrees centigrade, I wasn't at all surprised to find no moths in the trap next morning. I still haven't seen a moth yet this year!
To be honest if I wasn't participating in the Garden Moth Scheme, I wouldn't bother trapping at the moment whilst temperatures are so low. However, you can only miss so many weeks and as far as GMS is concerned a report of no moths trapped is still an important record.
The weather doesn't look promising this weekend either with snow forecast and minimum overnight temperatures down to -3!!
I went with David to see a play on Tuesday evening - a Birmingham Rep production called Heather Gardner. It's an adaptation by Robin French of Henrik Ibsen's Hedda Gabler. It was excellent and I really enjoyed the evening. Birmingham Rep stage some superb plays - I've loved every one I've seen there. We saw an Ibsen play "The Lady from the Sea" there a few years ago and it was another play that made a really deep impression on me.
