   'A dry month; snow fell on several days, but not in great quantities; frost did not last long; the weather on the whole was too mild for the time of year. Plants and trees in a forward state and birds singing as if it were spring; fields looking very fresh and green and farm work in a forward condition.'

and on the 1st of the month he noted ' Very mild, warm and bright and quite May-like.'
