When we woke up this morning the garden looked completely white, snow white. We don’t get snow often and usually it doesn’t stay for long as the ground is not froozen. A few hours after I took a few pictures of my garden the snow was gone. But my garden looked very pretty in white.
I just took a walk in my garden to see what was in bloom at the moment, not much but I found some.
WINTER HEATHER – ERICA CARNEA, easy plant, blooms a long time
VIBURNUM BODNANTENSE, the flowers are tiny, not really spectacular but they smell nice and bloom from Autumn till Spring. There are so many different Viburnums that you can have in the garden that you have Viburnum blooms 12 months per year !
HYACINT, this is not a bloom but a surprise, they are suposed to flower in March-April and it is only the 2nd of January today !!!
Winter has been very mild so far but wet wet wet ! But I’m not complaining, everything is better than snow and ice !!!
Have a great first week all and thanks for visiting !
It very much feels and looks like Spring at the moment and the garden is comming to life rapidly but the forecast is that we’ll get another Winter period in a few days time so I better enjoy it while I can. I finally started working in the garden and it feels good, I haven’t been able to do much for the last 2 years what with my broken wrist who turned out to be wrongly handled followed by my husbands illness and then my wrist operation…. but now I am ready to start again. And believe me there is a LOT to do !!
I took some pictures for you yesterday.

AND THE BUDS OF MY AMELANCHIER ARE GETTING BIGGER BY THE DAY AS THEY USUALLY START FLOWERING AT THE END OF MARCHI
So I had a bit of a rest, now I can go back to working in the garden.
I had my operation on December 1st. Got sent home with a bag of painkillers and I have to say I am surprised in a good way. All went well and I am wearing a temporary cast that is open cos my arm was swollen, Ill have to wear this 2 weeks and then I’ll get a normal cast.
What did they do ; they sawed through both my bones in my forearm, cut a piece of bone in my hip to put in my arm. The first few days were really painfull but now it is bearable. It was my right arm that needed the operation but they used my left hip to take a bit of bone from.
There are a lot of things I can’t do for a while but I hope to be ok by the beginning of Spring, I can’t wait to start in the garden again !!
As I can’t use my camera I ‘ll have to use old pictures…
I would like to thank you all for your support and good wishes !
