I refreshed my laptop as it was running very slow. It took an hour to do it! But like new again. Colder this morning with white frost everywhere but dry and not forecast to rain till the evening so I should get out in the garden and some jobs done and blow away the cobwebs accumulated while waiting for the computer. I think IT would drive me mad if I did not have a garden to escape to!
A lot of cricks in the neck there Flumpy! but they are lovely. TY.
Got a lot done in the garden and took pics. my snowdrops are very promiscuous and have offspring all over the garden now The £10 bulb of Galanthus elwesii "Colossus" must have been a favourite with the bees as their are giants head and shoulders above the others all over the place. What a stud! One of these days I will spend a few hours searching for a new variety among my many thousands of plants now. The variety called " Trym" was found in a garden in Westbury on Trym just a mile from me. So I live in snowdrop country (or in my case "city")
Not promised sunshine today in the forecast but then it was a surprise yesterday! Only 3 degrees this morning and forecast for 6 but dry so may get the green wheeliebin filled again and some pics taken. My friend of the tiny garden in Bristol has more crocuses in flower - this time Zwanenburg Bronze and I spy a small purple one .
Beautiful sunshine so lots of work done in the garden. Ready for a cup of tea now. i hope it is repeated tomorrow this gorgeous weather.
I believe the weave is a type of seersucker.
Yes Daydaisy magnolias can get very big. There is one two doors up from me and the flower petals reach my garden when they drop but it is breathtakingly beautiful. My bargain linen tablecloth ( £19 down from £55) and my 40 stems in bud British grown daffodils arrived this morning so I have been titivating the kitchen diner. The red is an exact match for my ceiling and the linen is a weave that does not need ironing.
Colder still - only 1 degree as yet and yellow warning of ice on untreated roads in Bristol till 10am. But sun forecast for the afternoon so may get out in the garden then. I bet there are great swathes of snowdrops now waiting for me to admire and smell. My parcel from Royal Mail did not arrive yesterday despite the email they sent saying it was in the depot awaiting delivery so I am hoping it comes this morning.
Wow, those Tete a Tetes are early. they must be in just the right place. I think I can see some buds out in my slate scree but too wet to go and check! TY Joyce. Lovely hellebore too.
We have a yellow warning for heavy rain from 11am in Bristol and set to be wet and windy all day so no hope of gardening outside. At only 5 degrees this morning it feels colder too and frost during the night is forecast.I have a new red tablecloth being delivered today which I bought in the sales so I am looking forward to that for my kitchen- diner. When I did my online shop for tomorrow Iceland had bunches of daffodils for £1 so I treated myself to two bunches to grace my new tablecloth. It will soon be spring indoors anyway.
