Choisya is good for an autumn/winter flowering. Mine rarely lets me down
I know it's technically the 2nd, but the weather here yesterday was truly horrid, and didn't stop once.
So I had a gander today and found
2 types of violas
rosemary (covered in flowers)
veronica (speedwell type)
and amazingly a lavender
Not a lot I know, but it has made me smile and lots more is in bud.. I'm ready for spring now.
I think a day late after yesterday's weather is totally acceptable MM,
and it does cheer you up.
Now, let me see
Violas, various colour ways
Roses: The fairy pink and white, white goose, Malvern Hills
Skimmia buds - aways look better than the flowers In think
Hellebore corsicus in bud but not yet opened
Yep Nutcutlet, It definitely cheers you up.
Just popped out and bought some seeds and then cut the large branches off the sickly Laburnam to stop it wobbling around so much in the wind. Hopefully it won't fly through the window now!
Thanks again for your help.
I forgot - Found cyclamen coum nestling in a weedy bed, lovely deep colour as well
Done a train garden count today flowers are
Violas honey bee
and a red flower plant shrub with spiky twigs
Was out yesterday so had a look today; I am amazed as to what's in flower, albeit "only just" in some cases!
Winter-flowering jasmine is really giving it laldy at the moment!
Wallflowers (those that haven't blown out of the ground!)
Primula wanda & others
Viburnum bodantense Dawn
Sedum spectabile - horizontal but still red!
Lamium (the mainly white leaf with purple flowers)
Pansies, various colours
Osteospernum Springstar Magenta- 5 flowers & loads of buds
Scabious, pale lilac, tatty but flowering
Anthemis Tinctoria EC Buxton (the one I forgot to cut down)4 flowers
Sweet William, just a couple of stems
A small creeping ranunculus has 2 tatty almost gone flowers
Clary sage has a couple of purple bracts
Achilleas have a few flower heads left
The Chaenomeles Rubra & Pink Lady are not actually out but the buds are really fat
The cineraria has lots of buds showing yellow but none out
Finally, the wide bowl of autumn crocus of which about 20% flowered in the autumn has 1 plant with a hint of purple thinking about coming through.
A few bulbs here & there are poking through the ground & those in troughs & pots are up a couple of inches or so -it'll be a long time before they're out!!
Not a sign of flowers on my Gautheria, but lots of berries
We've got an amazing collection between us
I have been away until today, but it has inspired me to go and look around my garden, once the rain stops blowing horizontally across it
This post made me look more closely at garden and today I noticed these
It's a clematis called ------------Bell I think. It's the first year it has flowered so feel very chuffed with it
That's a lovely thing to find Matty
Isn't that gorgeous
Very beautiful-puts a smile on the face.
Have found out what it's called now -Clem. Cirrohsa 'Wisley Magic'
Shall we resurrect this thread or will someone start a new one.
On second thoughts, best have a new one.
We'd better have one with 2015 in the title or we'll never find it again
I think a new one as well
Shall I start it today so it's ready for the first one?
Fine by me
We had a 2013 one too http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/plants/new-years-day-flower-count/69711.html by Nutcutlet
