It was hard getting up in the dark to go back to work on Monday morning, after having two weeks off, but these snowdrops were a welcome surprise.
Also the hellebores were starting to flower. Is it me or is it all a bit early because we have had such a mild winter so far.
In another garden winter aconites and sweet smelling Lonicera fragrantissima living up to it’s name. And rose pruning for me.
Prunus autumalis is a lovely winter flowering cherry with it’s delicate pink blossoms in the middle of winter. Yellow, native hazel catkins are pretty bright too especially when they move in the wind and the powdery pollen wafts out in clouds.
The first primroses are out!
Petasites, coltsfoot, the smell is amazing and the flower quite pretty but it spreads uncontrollably and it has very tough roots. You can see how much there is in the background, this is one small area.
In this garden, giant molehills!
Second week, still dark in the mornings although much lighter in the afternoons now. Muck spreading to keep me busy and more snowdrops out.
