Keeping the flowers alive part 4

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….

And another…..

Cyclamen Coum, 2 days later I found 3 more buds.

Image

Looking splendid among the leaves..an unnamed fern….

Image

Even the Camellia is enjoying the lack of frost…

Image

And after cutting away the old leaves from the epimedium, a lovely clump of snowdrops emerged…

Which reminds me …part 4…

Image

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.

  1. The machine embroidery and flower heads are absolutely beautiful. I’ve never heard of ‘free machine embroidery’ so I’m off to google. 🙂

  2. Lots of things going on in your garden, Sue, and lots to discover. I found the fabric shop in Castle Donnington but on a day it was closed – hadn’t made a special journey though, so will go another time. Your snowdrop textile is beautiful – but I would expect that from you!
