I would just like to wish everyone a very happy New Year and that all the garden plans you are making these days will be successful.

The flower on the first of my two Hyacinths is opening up nicely. I t looks as if it will have a second flower lower down. My second one is a bit behind and the third one rotted even though I don't think it  was touching the water.

I'm heading up north later on today -- I originally planned to go on Thurs --but my sister suggested I come sooner in case either of the airports was out of action. So I just want to wish everybody a very happy Christmas and safe travelling in these awful conditions.Talk to you all again next week hopefully.

I was cutting down my perennial Sweet Pea the other day, which grows up the Forsythia, and then I noticed that the Forsythia had a few flowers!

Schlumbergera need light!

I've had a few of these for several years and they never flowered very well. Then I read somewhere (maybe on this site, if so thanks!) that they need light so I moved one to a good bright place and sure enough it has lots of buds and the others haven't .

I bet they're glad now..

When the Petunias blew down in the gale a while ago I put the bits that broke off into water. I bet they're glad they're nice and cosy in the kitchen, while their siblings have died of cold outside!

No fresh snow here today so I took the camera out to find any brave flowers showing their faces. I'll put up an album.
