It's slim pickings here in the garden as far as flowers go just now but there are buds and shoots coming!
A few weeks ago - maybe a month - I picked this branch of crab apple to go on the kitchen windowsill. The window frames it very well.
It's been there ever since but last week my son noticed that it is shooting. The little apples are very withered but look at the buds on the end...
So now we'll be leaving it to see how far it goes on developing. I love how things are determined to grow.
A few beacons of hope in the garden:
|I'm not sure if this Hellebore is named, I think probably not. I must look through my labels. Organising them and listing is a job I have planned for a cold wet day.|
|I'm so excited to have this Lonicera fragrantissima. I've never had one before. It's planted under my bedroom window and already putting on good growth. The fragrance is heaven.|
