Forsythia In a Vase on Monday
We thought spring might be on the way. Wrong.
Instead of sowing seeds and planting bulbs we had snowdrifts. Happily they are melting now so we are back to the mud of early February.
Luckily I'd brought in some more twigs of Forsythia two weeks ago and now they are just right for a vase having opened up in the warm.
I should add that the Forsythia I cut about a month ago has only just dropped it's petals, very good value at this difficult time of year. Everything else looks pretty sad and we will have to wait and see what has survived the week of -5 temperatures and bitter winds.
The strong winds made pretty drifts. This is my front bed completely covered in snow.
And a solitary crocus blooming in the midst. The grass needs a good cut but who knows when it will be dry enough?
