Milder morning but dark and drizzly. I have family visiting so must cook this morning anyway. I have my first blue primula from my bargain basement plug plants open this morning so will take its pic later.
Yes flumpy it is the bad that makes you appreciate the good.
I found the wind had blown two of my Iris unguilaris flowers down into the mud so I rescued them and put them with my hellebore heads and discovered their beautiful perfume in doing so. They are now beneath my reading lamp where the heat will bring out the perfume. This perfumed gardening lark does tend to make one a bit hedonistic.
Good to hear from you,flowers. I treated myself to some flowers from the garden this morning and included my bird poster from RSPB as it is Bird watch weekend and put them in my Bristol Blue vases. I will get myself a bunch of snowdrops later to scent the kitchen.
Colder here too flumpy but forecast is for a dry day so will do the RSPB bird count today as rain is forecast for tomorrow. Not windy as yet.
A perfect pair LG. I have taken a few pics in the conservatory which is nice and warm too so will be reading in there among the flowers.
The scent from my hyacinths is delightful.
It has rained through the night so a wet scene out there this morning with a few things strewn around by the wind which is still gusting at 40 odd mph. Rain forecast till it is dark . Still very mild at 10degrees and set to climb to 12 but I will not venture out in that wind. My books I had for Xmas are calling me. Next best thing to being among my plants is reading about them. The camellia bud that is fully open in the conservatory is quite beautiful so will take its picture and post it later.
My nine perennials I ordered on Tuesday from the Secret Gardening Club have just arrived - red, white and blue - hemerocallis, vinca minor and platycodon. After a quick lunch I will get out again and see to them.
Yes TY GWRS. Lovely up there in the brilliant sunshine where the pristine white plum blossom and snowdrops were especially beautiful. Not too cold at 10degrees.
Only 3 degrees this morning but bright sunshine and dry garden at last. My spirits are quite lifted despite the cold. I should be able to visit the whole of my garden today and see what is thriving. The squirrels are out already and the birds. It is very calm and peaceful.
