So the weather for part of this week was a little kinder, it allowed me to potter for a short while and to take stock of forthcoming jobs.
Last weekend we went to Castle Donnington (more in another post later ), but as usual I found a bargain plant.Yet another Hellebore, this time Helleborus x ericsmitthii Pink Frost. Reading up about this later I find that it ages to dark red, I will keep you posted.
Anyway back to the garden. I have been clearing some leaves away, and it never fails to amaze me what I find .
Crocus shoots pierce a leaf….
Cyclamen Coum, 2 days later I found 3 more buds.
Looking splendid among the leaves..an unnamed fern….
Even the Camellia is enjoying the lack of frost…
And after cutting away the old leaves from the epimedium, a lovely clump of snowdrops emerged…
Which reminds me …part 4…
Free Machine embroidery and applied flower heads….
Made in 2008…this hangs with the Eucomis.
I just hope that the weather clears for everyone down on the south west of England. They sure have had their fair (or unfair ) share of it. Our thoughts are with you all.
