“Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle … a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl. And the anticipation nurtures our dream.” — Barbara Winkler
It’s been bright and cold but that’s much better than dull and damp. I scour the garden for signs of life and I am reminded what bloomed in the garden last year.
No exciting offerings here, but they gladden my heart.
|Winter Jasmine continues to brighten up the entrance.|
|The first Bellis flower which promises more to follow.|
|Calendula grown from seed. Lots more seedlings in the wings awaiting the warmer weather|
|The variegated Vinca Major has clambered up the fence|
|The Abelia is a good doer and has been flowering since July|
