Hi Hf as well

Great gardening weather

Hi Philippa

I had a day off from cutting and shredding. Wandered round looking to see what's happening.

I have my first ever flowers on Chimonanthus praecox. Not many but it's a start.

Snowdrops are appearing, Crocus tommasinianus are flowering but unfortunately have suffered damage in the cutting and shredding activities.

Cotoneaster 'Cornubia' is splendid but lots of berries on the ground now, Malus baccata is feeding the birds. 2 varieties of Mahonia in flower, a few hellebores, winter lonicera and Cyclamen coum. 

Cornus mas looks almost ready, it often does at this time but always keeps me waiting til February.

Also Pulmonaria rubra, ready for the first bees

If it's going to snow we might get a few more days off. I've got shredder's shoulder and OH has got a swollen wrist - (chainsaw, shredder, high-level cutter injury. The possibilities are many).

Roses From seed.

No, I sow mine in autumn They don't need warmth.

They may not germinate for some time but they'll get there eventually

My little ones got more fun out of the wrapping paper than the pressies in early years. Lovely feel and sound. Real paper though, none of the plastic bendy stuff

Happy Christmas rm

Roses don't do very well indoors. I'd enjoy it while it's in flower, in cool as room as possible. Then the porch then the garden when the weather has warmed up a bit

I think those that thought it was invasive were thinking of Arum maculatum

Dragon arum or Dracunculus vulgaris lorr,  not arum lily


below is arum lily 


What is this?

A passion fruit, Passiflora caerulea probably. Not sure about the edibility, they're not the same species as those in the SMs or in passion fruit ice cream
