it has been relatively mild with few, if any, overnight frosts so it’s not surprising to see the crocuses trying to flower and daffodils appearing above ground. Even the dwarf tulips have just started showing.
I’ve moved the long planter to provide a shed door stop. As you can see the primroses are providing some welcome winter colour.
I’ve put a covering of wood chip over the stones in front of the shed, then once the grass along the nearby path edges grows and some pot marigolds flower around should look quite good.
Despite the asters being the last plants to flower in the autumn they’re the first to show signs of new growth.
On the left is the white flowering (aster novi-belgii Monte Cassino) and the other is the darker leafed red flowering one (variety not known) that I was given last autumn.
Have a good week!
