New Year's Day 2017 Flower Count

Posted: 04/01/2017 at 08:03

Good selection you have there Newb. Some of ours are a bit later to flower here, like Sarcococca.

We do a count every year - it's quite good for ideas for new plants as well, so it's useful as well as interesting

Morning all/afties Pat. At that price, pity they're was only one left. You could have got one for every room 

Hope you have another good day today Wonks. It's half way to the weekend - you can catch up then 

It's a drag going back isn't it chicky? 

I'm heading out soon too - need to scrape the car first as I didn't cover it 

will remember to do it later for the forecast frost tonight. Have a good day everyone, whatever the weather

Gorgeous chicky  

I love the frosted branches, but particularly like the third pic. It's like snow when the  frost draws out the moisture  

I didn't get round to taking any when we had a week of that stuff. Not sure why. They make great subjects.

Try doing your pic then adding the text BL. It might be better

I just type and then do the pic BL. Although sometimes when I do my walking pix, I do the pix then add the captions. I move the cursor where I want it while the pic uploads, because as soon as you click the icon, the cursor disappears for some reason 

Your hellebore is huge - mine is quite young though. Lovely plants

I've seen one occasionally in this garden Liri. They like conifers so it's usually in or around the big one in the corner of my garden. It comes in handy for cover for lots of birds, so it's good to have a positive view of conifers for a change! I used to see one or two in a conifer hedge on the boundary of a garden near my daughters' school. They're really lovely little birds
