It's must be so strange to see crocus, daffs and grape hyaciths in bloom now.

Everything is very green and lush here, cooler but no frost.

Rudebekias x 2 types,

annual trailing stock,


Goblin gardillia,

White sweet rocket

Bowles Mauve- always flowering!

Cloth of Gold wallflower- I've had this for years

Pulmonaria- Thank you nut, just noticed it flowering today. It's pretty shady where it is, but looks like it will do well there  The flowers are red. It's one that has retained it's label but can't read the writing ha ha. I love these plants

Hardy pink geranium and

a single cosmos and candytuff flower

It was good to be outside and have a look at what's been going on. Shanta daisies have buds on them and the pestenmons cuttings are growing really well should be good plants in Summer. Too wet to do anything though, everything is soggy. Starting a written record this year

Happy new year Marion. Don't often post on your thread but I've enjoyed looking and reading all about your garden.

I grow for the pollinaters too. You are an inspiration, looking forward to what our growing year has in store for us

Water slightly when sown so that the compost is damp and that should be it until they pop through

Love your garden Fairy, very stylish and beautiful. It looks totally different now and bigger than what you describe. You've really made a great space and your own oasis.

Off to a great start Grabs, keep taking the photos as you go

Anyone done any gardening today?

Popped out as the rain has stopped and the sun has made an appearance. Admired my penstenoms cuttings, 3 out of the 4 have taken and will probably need repotting again before the Spring 

All of these were taken from a plant that was the size of my thumbnail, love plant propagation, gardening has taught me loads of patience. Missing being outside, hope we have some sunny dry days over the holidays
