Early Arrival

I've just spotted this in the garden.

It looks as if a slug has had a nibble, but despite this it's lovely to see Iris Unguicularis blooming so early. I normally see the first flowers towards the end of January.

This cheered me up after a frustrating visit to the G.P. to get our flu jabs........ they've run out of vaccine. We couldn't go earlier due to Steven's hospital admissions. It cost me £10 in taxi fares, too.

On the needles, I've just started a pair of mittens for Steven in Regia sock wool.

Our Iris is flowering too.
Three flowers so far, and all before the first frost!
That came last night.
