Oh dear Hosta - what a pain (quite literally)
Forced myself outside in the mizzly drizzle ....and had a lovely time. Had forgotten that gardens can be fun even in grotty weather. My hellebore bed is now weeded and mulched with leaf mould. It is on the way from the car to our front door, so it always pleases me when I finally get round to sorting it each year.
So many treasures flowering out there - all at the wrong time. Both my chanomelese (spelling? - japanese quince in English), the daphne, the winter honeysuckle, even 2 hellebores in flower, and the snowdrops already poking their noses above the soil. Guess that's what happens if there is not a cold autumn
