Early Spring–My Garden – 2016

We are in the late end of January 2016.Here in the U.k people have been astounded by the type of weather we have been having. Usually the experience is of cold frosty days, dry & cold & even sometimes snow.

I can remember at the beginning of December 2015 the rain had set in, despite mild every day was rain with some days never ceasing. There was an occasional day with, dare I say the word, SUN,

Life in the garden has been disillusioned and plants never went to sleep or some would have gone but due to being warm soon emerged. Their time to show and grow normally late February/March.

As you all know I grow my flowers ect. in pots – a pot gardener.

Out in the front garden the bluebell leaves are growing. Miniature daffodils have buds and yellow crocus in the large round stone tub are waiting for the sun to burst into flower.

On the front doorstep a Snowdrop, just about to open.

Outside the back yard more surprises as the variety of bulbs out there show their faces.



This photo shows my Daffodil and 2 Rosebuds that I picked, put in the vase and on the windowsill to enjoy. They both have their distinctive smell.

Today is mild again but cloud overhangs. Benji & I will after our breakfast, go for an enjoyable walk.

    How nice to have your flowers blooming now. I’ve got 2 feet of snow that has to melt before I’ll see any flowers. Enjoy.

    The weather is wacky Mary. Although we are having a relatively mild winter here in Ontario, it will be a while yet before we see any daffodils.
