I saw my first OSR flowers of the season, around Wantage.

just shows regional variation. My ladies are on a farm with a large OSR planting in Yorkshire. It's no where near flowering; plants are only about 40cm high, no sign of bud formation yet. Still its probably tall enough to keep the heads above the next snow fall!

Walked my OSR yesterday and it was not moving at all.
