The craze for snowdrops continues, with more and more gardens opening in February to show off their collections. I like snowdrops en masse and some of the best are in old gardens where the flowers have been left to their own devices to spread, often in areas some little way from the house. That's how it is at Chippenham Park in Cambridgeshire, which I visited for the first time this month.

When racing got under way here today, the turf on either side of the track had both the colour and consistency of bone – but an afternoon of sport was none the less prised from the muddy green strip beneath the frost blankets.

Tomorrow is market day, so today huge lorries, trucks and brightly painted tap taps (buses) are assembling at the Haitian-Dominican border at Mal Paso, outside Jimaní, their goods piled high in anticipation of making a profitable sale. The vendors have a problem, though. The area they use on the Haitian side of the border is now under water, while all that is left on the Dominican side is a minuscule patch barely larger than the width of the road. Flood water laps against abandoned warehouses and covers some of the road, which has been reinforced and raised once already.
