I find it surprising…

that I’m still plotting almost daily at this time of year but making the most of the good weather has really been worthwhile, and I should be well prepared to start planting and sowing in the spring.

As well as the crocuses that I mentioned almost a month ago the daffodils have now started appearing.  There’s also new growth on the sedums.

That’s not all as it’s the same with both the asters and perennial  cornflowers.


I’ve not known what day of the week it’s been recently but the horticultural society trading shed reopens on Sunday and next week sees a return to a normal routine.  I’ll also be thankful when it starts getting noticeably lighter in the mornings.

Have a good weekend!

    I’m definitely looking forward to some longer days again, and it’s lovely to see signs of new growth, spring can’t come quickly enough for me. You should be well prepared for the new growing season with all the plotting you’re managing to get done.

    Hurrah for new growth and signs of spring. So glad you have be able to potter so much – good for the soul xx

    Goodness! All that new growth so early in the year. I know exactly what you mean by confusion over the day of the week. I feel the same. Still, you’ve been able to potter and I bet there’s not a weed in sight.

    It has been a funny old start to the new year with this mild weather we have had although I suspect we will pay for it eventually! It’s always lovely to see signs of new life popping up & makes me excited for nice things to come. I also can’t wait for the lighter mornings too 😉

    Amen to your last comment. The weather has been unusual for this time of year, it does not surprise me, therefore, to see so many plants shooting forth. I do hope they will not be caught out.

    Although the longer days will be welcome, I’m rather enjoying the dark hours in the morning and evening to do more indoors, like making dinner in good time and having time to read quietly. Plenty of signs of life over here as well, it’s been so mild. I’ll be glad if we don’t get another harsh winter!

      Caro I don’t mind the evenings, but I get up early so would welcome lighter mornings. I’m not surprised, I noticed flower buds on the crocuses this morning. Me too. xx

  12. Just love those pics of new growth – cheered me up no end this morning.
