Last Sunday we woke to snow - the first of this winter! But by the evening it had all melted away and the garden looked none the worse for it.
The daffodils were still standing...
the new leaves on the clematis still growing..
...even the new, totally unseasonal, shoots of montbretia looking ok
and these couple of feverfew flowers still somehow hanging on from summer
This week we've had some sharp, white-over frosts which have made the bergenias look rather ragged but these last couple of days Spring seems to have arrived with buds on snowdrops, crocuses, polyanthus and daffodils.
It feels like any day now the garden could suddenly explode with colour - as if it were March rather than January!
