January 2015 in the garden

Not been good at blogging just recently so will try to do better.  Will start with what is happening in the garden month by month.  It hasn't been a bad winter here with very little snow.

This is as much as we had, not very impressive. 

Flowers started appearing early with the mild weather. 

I seem to have primroses all year round.  Mine come in many colours but this is the colour of the wild ones.  Looks so delicate but very hardy to grow through the winter.

4th January and the snowdrops have pushed through the ground. Wonder if they were expecting snow?

Here they are on 30th January, almost open

I have jumped ahead to 25th February for this picture.  Lovely that the flowers last so long. 

The middle of January and the daffodil shoots also appear.  As the daffodil is the national flower of Wales I always hope to see them flowering for St David's Day, 1st March. We can only wait and see. 

The crocus also appears in January, the bright yellow flowers always shooting up ahead of the leaves.
