surviving the snow

snow is starting to thaw so I've been pottering around, looking for snowdrops, checking what has survived and such like. very surprised to see the alpine strawberry still flowering - but even more so when I found fruit on it! can't imagine it will ripen but here it is - a strawberry in the middle of winter.

also discovered a geranium that should have been taken indoors months ago - don't know how come that's alive at all!

meanwhile, in the greenhouse things are now wrapped up nice and warm - bubblewrap on the ceiling and then the plastic greenhouse tucked inside. the watering can was still frozen though this morning.
