Snowdrop Season

 Well the first signs of Spring are visible all around,with little colourful heads of crocus and snowdrops coming up! Last weekend I was lucky enough to catch an open garden visit,held in aid of our local hospice,where these beautiful snowdrops and some hellebores were well up over ground and in full bloom.
My snowdrops are barely breaking the surface at the moment but these are not your common or garden snowdrops maybe they are hybrid and respond of course to the care and attention given by the gardener of the house!There were so many varieties,all named with their individual stickers.The day was not too kind weather wise but I was fortunate to go early in the morning before the rain arrived in the afternoon!

 These cloches featured all over the garden too.

A New Year!

Well Christmas 2012 has come and gone,thankfully it passed off well with no disasters! We enjoyed our turkey and ham dinner with all the trimmings! My gifts this year included an IPad which I love!I also have a day spa to look forward too!

Happy New Year to all,may it be healthy and peaceful!

Onwards and upwards now to gardening matters and the coming Spring!My snowdrops are well up over ground now and I planted lots of daffy and tulips out front too so I am looking forward to a colourful show in springtime!

happy Gardening!
