No snow in Bristol yet but lots of you have so where are all those winter wonderlands that were our gardens?  I am waiting for the pictures.

just a smattering of snow on Dartmoor, view from window (inside that is!)

 The hydrangea heads are hanging on well, reminding me of the hard work to cut them all down in March.

Yes, mine too in Bristol, Lyn.  Those sheep look like they have lovely thick coats.

The sheep are doing very well, no lambs yet.

Not a great deal of snow in Warwickshire, but we have had a hard frost.

This is the end of a stalk of grass....

These are rose leaves....

And this is a frost-covered birch tree. It would look prettier if we could get some blue sky behind it...

Splendid pictures.  The frost is a great artist.

Four inches of snow on my conservatory roof and still snow but the garden looks so beautiful.  Pictures when I get them edited.

All sorts of things we never notice much become very significent when it snows like chimneys, gates and fences.

Happy Marion you ask where are our photos of our gardens in the snow. There have been quite a lot of photos of snow under some of the other headings.

 This is the silver birch that I sent a slightly different view of earlier, before the snow.

18/01/2013 at 23:00

And this is part of my garden in the snow.

Just lovely, Busy-Lizzie.  TY.  Our gardens really are winter woderlands now.

Here is a real winter wonder growing in the greenhouses at Bristol Botanic Garden.  It is the Darwin orchid - Angraecum sesquipedale.  It is famous because when Darwin found it the pollinating moth had not been identified

http://s3.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/18075.jpg?width=350

 

and he predicted it would have a long tongue to match and he was right so the moth has in its Latin name "praedicta" It is an example of co-evolution.  It only flowers for a week every year and the spurs in this one are about ten inches long.

Wow, that is beautiful and unusual, Marion. I can only send you one of my house plants in flower, a Christmas cactus that my son gave me years ago.

It is so lovely to be able to share such beautiful pics on here

Snowdrops are one of the wonders of winter and it is Feb.2nd and they are in full bloom in my garden.  I paid £20 for one bulb of "Colossus"  a few years ago and now look at the clump of very tall. large flowered , sweetly scented plants.

 Here are some more of my many varieties and species.

My computer can't seem to cope with all these photos anymore. It started showing them and now they've all vanished and after several minutes still no photos.

02/02/2013 at 20:06

Oh dear, Busy-Lizzie.  i don't know what has caused that.  I am still getting them OK.
