The weather has been relatively mild this year so I’ve been out doing a small amount of gardening. Mainly digging dandelions out of the lawn and cutting back the leaves on hellebores so you can see the flowers. I’ve also placed my annual seed/plug plant order after a couple of enjoyable hours looking through gardening catalogues.
These are the flowers on the Daphne, which also smells amazing. I planted it near our front wall so you get a glorious waft of scent as you walk past. Just the thing to cheer you up on a January day!
It’s so much easier to see the hellebore flowers now I’ve cut the older leaves back. The colour of these is quite intense – these were grown from seed from a neighbour’s plant.
Rhubarb is beginning to appear.
And it looks like the squirrels didn’t eat all of the bulbs I planted in the autumn!
Snowdrops have appeared!
And… there are still flowers on one of the fuchsias!
How is your garden looking this January?
