At the beginning of the month I started off my indoor Amaryllis and at this stage they've all put up leaves, but this morning I see one of them has a bud showing. I'm particularly glad because this is one I've been feeding up for the last few years from an offset (if that's the correct term); it flowered two years ago and then skipped last year , so I'm delighted that it seems to be going to flower again this year.

Then there were three....
I just stepped out to see how bad the weather was--not quite as bad as I thought actually, extremely windy but not as wet as it seemed from inside-- and then I spotted that two pals had joined my first snowdrop.

Yes... a snowdrop!
I've been peering at the ground hopefully for the last few days and today, there it was. The first of many hopefully.

Hyacinth does a somersault!
I had my two Hyacinths on the mantelpiece, but today I suddenly noticed that there was only one there. When I went to investigate I discovered that it had over-balanced and landed on the fireplace, but amazingly the vase had landed right way up and not broken. I thought the Hyacinth was undamaged too, but later I found out that one of its two flowers had broken off. Still, could have been a lot worse.

I moved a couple of house plants on to this table after I took down my little Christmas tree and I think they look nice together.
