12 January 2012

It's now mid January and the garden has become unusually dry for the time of year. The last week has seen day time temperatures into 2 figures although now becoming cooler and below freezing forecast for the end of the month. I spent a very nice 10 minutes in the lower garden sitting in the sunshine yesterday and feeling quite warm.

The Hellebores are in flower – a real joy, and I have a pot of snowdrops looking lovely on the terrace. The fox has been scent marking its territory round the terrace which is not a joy! We also have Pulmonaria Rubra flowering, as well as Witch hazel, Sarcococca and Viburnum Bodnantse Dawn which are giving off a lovely perfume when I walk past.
