Narcissus starting to grow

Posted: 15/01/2014 at 14:56

Mine are showing also, have been since just before Christmas. Just goes to show how mild it is. I also still have roses flowering, and my geraniums are also still flowering, on and off. Finally managed to get outside over the weekend to try and cut it back thinking it must surely be all over by now but nope.... flower buds everywhere! Crazy weather.

I absolutely loved last nights section on stumperies. Sublime! I didn't realise just how beautiful "boring" plants such as ferns can be. In the right environment they are stunning. (We already have a good few at home but can't say I've warmed to them, perhaps cos they're all higgeldy piggledy and look as though someone dropped them there and couldnt be bothered to pick them up! I don't know if I'd go the whole hog with full stumperies but this persuaded me to plant more ferns, in as many varieties as I can and just sit back and watch them grow. I bought a lot of flowering plants last year as the property I live in is surrounded by trees, has tree borders and is green, green and green however I've now seen how lovely green can be so why not just go with the whole "in its own environment" thing and not worry so much with "flowering beauties".

Dove, that sounds lovely

I'm so so bored stiff

Suffering here too. My garden looks just awful! Haven't been able to get up most of the leaves from the fall in Autumn as the grass on the property is in really bad condition and any raking of it in the wet results in great big ugly bald patches. Right now it looks as though someone can't be bothered! Beautiful edged and barked area in the front garden also covered in icky wet rotting leaves and certainly not beautiful any more. Can't finish tidying the back or the border as its just rain, rain, rain and when it feels like it a little heavier rain. Factor in the continual 50 - 70 mph plus wind and....... no gardening activity at all! Roll on spring!  And after all of that, a Happy New Year to all! x

Just visited your blog James. Well done.

Any hope for a diseased Sorbus (Autumn Spire)?

Sorry I can't help AJ but I'm responding to bump this back up the list, hopefully someone else that can help will see it.

David K thank you so much. Some useful information there. I think perhaps to start the point and shoot option would be the most practical so I'll look into the Canon Powershot. Thanks again.

Hi all,

Its the first time I've seen this thread and its fantastic, what stunning pictures. Thank you all so much I've really enjoyed it. No pics to add from me but some advice would be appreciated if you don't mind. OH wants a camera for Christmas but I've no idea which would be best? He wants if for taking pics of garden and inanimate objects that don't move but also wants to be able to take pics of fast moving things such as the birds in the garden so I'm guessing something that allows high speed pics and it would also need to have a pretty good zoom and something similar to auto focus (he cant keep a camera still!). Any advice or recommendations greatly appreciated. Then I might be able to upload some of the results here. Heather x
