Abstract

Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Also includes leafing, flowering, and fruiting times of a few standard plants in the Royal Societies gardens for the month of February, 1870.- More enjoyable weather than existed during this month could scarcely be possible. Sunny, with moderate temperature, abundant and gentle ozoneladen sea breezes, almost cloudless clear skies, with only one day of smart rain and five others with sprinkling showers, formed altogether such genial weather, that it well deserved the epithet of "heavenly" which our numerous visitors from the Australian Continent and other less favoured climates so rapturously affixed to it. Nevertheless most of the atmospherical phenomenon varied greatly from the mean character of the month, as exhibited by the Meteorological Records of the previous twenty-nine years.
