I didn't have much free time today, but it was so cold out that I had NO intentions of doing anything worthwhile anyway. Spring is just around the corner and I'm in no hurry. Delighted to see my second Hamamelis open today. One more to go.

Prompted by Myrtle's post on Facebook, I had a little nosey at my own Clivia. It hasn't flowered in about two or three years. But lo and behold, there are tiny little buds appearing.

Look forward to seeing those little buds open!

Yes Jacinta, it was quite cold yesterday but look at the brightness and length of the days, Spring is here, St. Brigid's Day.

Lots of promise in that Clivia, Jacinta.  Hope the weather will warm up a bit now that the sun is rising higher; I've found the last few days very cold.
