February Garden

Not a lot has changed from last month. The winter Irises have made a small effort but the best they have managed is three blooms at one time. The crocuses are now in bloom.

These are Pickwick.

 The daffodils are in bud but not open yet although I have seen some more advanced in nearby gardens.

There are no Frogs in the pond yet although it has been iced over on most recent mornings so perhaps they are waiting for warmer weather.

January Garden

The mild weather continues and the garden is beginning to wake up.
Snowdrops are appearing in odd corners.

The hellebores are in full bloom.

And a clematis I planted last year is putting out new shoots.

The main disappointment are the winter Iris. There has only been occasional single blooms appearing probably due to lack of sun last year.
