Hello my darlings I am rather late with this one so "Happy New Year", and it's just a quick run through of the state of play in our garden as it was in mid January.
Indoors the hyacinth was a real joy.
As was the Peace Lily with its yearly single flower
The window boxes gave us some colour through a very drab month.
Daffs are up, wallflowers are filling-out and the Nicotiana are holding on in the front border.
While, out the back -
The three apple trees that once were an espalier are due for a second pruning in February.
The greenhouse is fab though it is is difficult to ventilate and is causing issues with damp.
With seed sowing starting in earnest, it's back to the kitchen table.
Outside the plants in containers are, so far, surviving the frosts.
Back inside, we are over the moon that last year's Hippeastrum has a new flower forming!
All in all, Doncaster Donny seems rather pleased.

Hello me dears.
A Londoner cant but help but to have a love hate relationship with the Tube. One of the things I have always loved is its use of artist in the creation of its posters. There are of course many fab Art Deco examples.
last year I was very pleased to be faced with T.F.L.'s offering, celebrating 150 years of tube travel.
Hear are a few for your perusal.
