One more week officially of winter but the flowers in my garden think it is spring despite the cold. The brightest was the deep purple
of the Iris reticulata,
The forecast is not good.
I hope everyone watched tonight. This is what I came up with.
Why did the chicken cross the new path?
So he could make happymarion laugh.
One of my friends from the Alpine Garden Society has just grought me an article for our group newsletter on Hellebores. I took this picture of her and her husband;s garden which is a picture that illustrates a winter wonder indeed.
The picottee hellebores still have a month of flowering on them.
These Galanthus elwesii "Colossus" have been delighting me for two months already this winter. Their
parent is behind and very much smaller.
New Brunswick in Canada where my sister lives had a heavy fall of snow this week and hoar frost, so she sent me this beautiful picture of her poplar tree.
And of her neighbours ice sculptures
i don't whinge because I can only remember the good things. a friend asked me this morning how my garden was last summer. i replied it was super - I had such a glut of strawberries I am still eating them. only after she had gone did I remember the complete absence of Bramley apples which I normally have tons of.
The old carpet is down and covered with the pond liner and the edges anchored. When we had that frightful rain it began to fill up nicely but one night the wind was fierce and my anchoring not good enough so the water drained out the corner where the liner lifted. But i will tackle it again when the cold lifts as all is intact and still there. I hope your garden and the wildlife in it will help you heal after your trauma, Sarah. So lovely to hear from you. i am very well but feeling the cold and so my photos at the moment are coming from the kichen window!
How cute is that. My male brambling is eyeing up my bird ornament with solar powered light on my picnic table. I would love to get a photo of the female if she comes to feed and sees this. He has been looking at it for over ten minutes now.
