Garden Views-01-January 2019

After the wet, grey and mild end to 2018, it was huge delight to start the New Year, with some more typically wintry weather. The high pressure continues to dominate our weather for now, but with light winds, and at last some sunshine and frosts down to minus 5 degrees for the first 3 nights of 2019, it’s a nice start to the New Year.

Wintry birds at dawn and dusk… And Cyclamen coum providing carpets of colour. All that time spent hand pollinating, paying dividends with delight, years later…

Evergreens, like our Skimmias proving their worth in wintry temperatures…

And first Crocus and Scillas starting to back up the snowdrops for floral interest in this first week of the New Year…
