That is my Japanese Cherry aym280. I bought a joblot of 6 Cyclamen coum and was delighted with them. There is one with white flowers somewhere. I will no doubt find it again one day. I tend to tuck them in shady places. Today and tomorrow are set to be dry and warm enough to garden but rain forecast in the following days so must get busy.
I dodged the showers to get a record of what is making a good show in my garden this last day of February.
TY Verdun. It worked like magic till after 12 then the heavy icy rain and strong wind sent me scurrying indoors again or it might just have been the thought of a big pile of pancakes for lunch!!!
Yes TY GWRS. Our weather was vile yesterday so am pleased to see the sun this morning though it is icy in Bristol. I may get out in the garden in the afternoon if the rain stays away as forecast is to reach 7 degrees by then.
I hope you are as lucky as i have been. After a heavy shower the sun came out so I sallied forth for some vitamin D and adventures - two this morning! i found two tulips flowering in February - OK their leaves have been dinner for a slug and they are alpines planted in the sunniest part of the garden but in February!!! Also my two cuttings i took from the rhododendron greenery in my Xmas present bouquet are growing apace and one has three buds on - cannot wait to see what colour they are.
Oh dear such a dreary forecast for a Monday morning - only 7 degrees which it is already so all downhill today getting colder and colder till only 1 degree tonight and lots of rain or hail with it! I doubt whether I will venture outside today.
It rained all afternoon but Son no2 arrived with some of his film collection and i chose "The Revenant" to watch. what a film! It is going to be a bit colder again tomorrow too.as well as wet!!!
Oh TY Flumpy I had forgotten about my forsythia. just been up to look and buds bursting open. I will replace my Valentine's Day flowers with a big bunch of forsythia next week some time as they won't last much longer. next week!
A bit brighter out now but has been a wet night and more heavy rain forecast for the afternoon. I think gardenng in the conservatory today might be sensible specially as high winds are forecast too. There may be more tree branches ready to fall.
Wow, Verdun I have not been so lucky but I do spend all my smaller winnings on the garden and it mounts up over the years. It has rained since noon but I did take out my camera, shielded it with my raincoat to get pictures of my daffs which are all over the garden - native Welsh, Tete a tete. Hawera. Minnow among them.I have lovely large flowers on my primulas this year.
