Notes from the Island
February 1998

This January has been noteworthy for the series of floods and continuing high water that kept the Island closed most of the Month. The unseasonably warm weather has already turned swollen buds into leaf on some of the bushes on the Island, and even the bluebells are starting to poke up as we march into February.

Tryon Wells has obtained for us a final and appropriate web page address, and you should not miss the pictures of the 11-foot flood he has made available on:

See the "Caretaker's Log" for this same month.
