NEW LIFE

Outside it’s chilly, windy and wet but it is too warm for Winter so lots of plants and tree’s are starting to grow again. But the problem is that the weather can change for the worse and we can still expect snow and severe frost untill mid May and some years even later. Then all that new life that is growing now will be dead but most plants can grow again later in the year.

My garden looks dull, apart from the evergreens there is nothing to see. I had lots of rosebottles and red berries but they are all eaten by the birds now.

LICHEN AND MOSS
NEW BUDS
EUONYMUS EMERALD AND GOLD, ALWAYS LOOKS AS IF THE SUN IS SHINING ON THIS LITTLE BRIGHT BUSH

HAVE A GREAT WEEK AND TAKE CARE.

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR VISITS AND LIKES AND COMMENTS.

S.N.O.W.

We had snow last night, lots of snow, it is decades ago since we last had this amount of snow and more is comming our way. Yikes !!!! And it is COLD !!

A few pictures of my garden this afternoon.

Aparently the snow will stay for over a week and I so hate it. We are not used to it so we don’t have snowmachines to remove snow from the roads (only a few in the cities) so only salt is used but only on the big roads.

I hope you are all well and happy. Have a great week and stay safe.

FROST

THIS IS FROST, NOT SNOW

It looks like snow but this is just frosted fog, after the frost was gone the sun came out and gave us this beautiful blue sky.

I hope you’ll all have a great weekend.

FROZEN

Frost in the garden and a bit of sun, turns the garden into a Winter wonderland.

When I was taking these pictures in my garden my puppy fell through the thin ice cover on the pond, lucky she was able to come out quickly. I wrapped her dry with a big towel and kept her with me wrapped in a fleece blanket. I was shocked as she is tiny (mini Maltese).

Have a great weekend all.

Big and beautiful

Big and beautiful, that’s how I describe the AMARYLLIS. In a time where very few plants are in bloom you can always count on the amaryllis. You can buy them as bulbs and grow them inside your house but they are also for sale in every plantshop in Winter, in a pot in bloom or as cut flowers. The red ones are very popular for Christmas but they come in many colours. I was given a bunch as a gift and I was very pleased with it. Just looking at them made me happy.

AMARYLLIS
I HOPE YOU WILL ALL HAVE A COLOURFUL,HAPPY AND HEALTHY 2020 !
