SNOW NOW


The garden looks so different under its blanket of snow; I don't think we will get much more but I will keep an eye open that the snow doesn't weigh down the branches of Mick's Rhododendron; if it does I'll knock some of the snow off....it's a very special plant to us and is Mick's "baby".








snug as a bug in the ivy


I hope all the ladybirds and other beneficial insects are keeping snug and warm in the ivy on the fence!












summer flowers on a winters day
I love the fact that we have summer flowering Busy Lizzies and Begonias in bloom on the windowsill; with the snowy background outside I should call this photo "Summer meets Winter"









mustard and cress

Because of the weather and lack of compost I had to make do with sowing Mustard and Cress as my gardening project for today!






the forgotten Amarylis
A bit of fun with my Amarylis photos
