Yes, the cold weather is frustrating when you want to get going in the garden. I have an apple tree and around the base are loads of bulbs. First up are the Snowdrops. They have been in bloom for two weeks already. It's so wonderful at this time of year to see them so pure and white and in such profusion. It tells me winter is on its last knockings and spring is just around the corner. Next will be the Crocuses, then Daffs, then the Tulips & Bluebells. So get loads of bulbs in next year - they are a great alarm clock and they make you feel optimistic really early on, and you can start planning when they bloom.
