It is about time I did my first journal of the year!  Here are a few from my garden, can't believe how fast everything is growing!   I have put a few in of my maples that are young and in pots in the garage for tonight as the frost which I believe we are going to have will damage them!

My first Erythronium to flower is a new one I got last year so happy it is flowering!

The daffodils have been flowering for weeks - such great value!

The Epimedium is a great flowerer and then such lovely leaves afterwards for the summer.

Stay warm!

Two fabulous flowers in the Epimedium and Erythronium, Linda. Can't wait to see how your new garden is developing.

Your garden has wonderful colour from the planting of daffodils. The erythronium is to die for and very well photographed. Looking forward to seeing more photos as the year goes on.

You are making great strides in the garden Linda and that erythronium is just fantastic. I need to move mine to enjoy them more and I need to get a white like that. Great display of daffs. i've had leaves of my acers burnt over the years due to frost and my Orange Dream is jsut produving leaves at the moment so here's hoping we don't get much of this weeks frosts.

Let the Mutt out at 6am this Morning for his Exercise only to be greeted with a fall of Snow...Thankfully it only lasted a few Minutes and didn't stick, but anything is possible so I wouldn't put any young Plants out yet and even though it's Sunny here you can still feel the Chill...

That's coming along nicely, Linda. It'll be a picture and open to the public by the time you've finished!

Thanks everyone, garden coming along nicely so hope to be posting more this year!!!  Mary I only cut off the dead leaves of the Epimedium about two weeks ago when I saw the flower buds underneath, the after the flowers the new leaves should appear!
