Hello me dears. Well then January has come and gone and I am writing this rather late post on our return from hols.
Looking back, the month was a mixed bag mild to start and then a little snow, a few hard frosts ( -4.8'c ) along with storm force winds
The dahlia imperialis lasted into 2016 but not for long.
But along with the frosts there are some early stirrings of Spring.
Window boxes and wallflowers are looking good
The wallflowers we grew from seed are looking much better than the ones bought in last year.
In the back garden -
Bluebells are up -
The last nasturtium from last year held on for a while
We had the first flowering of the cyclamen we planted
along with our first snowdrops.
and the daffs have started nice and early this year.
daffodil February gold
All of last Autumns plantlets are doing well and seed sowing has started indoors.
All in all a good start to the year
I will be back for the February posting ( hopefully ) on time next month
