Each year we record the flowers in bloom in our gardens at New Year. 

I’m away from home at the moment so I’ll have to do mine when I get back in a couple of days ... but I thought I’d start the thread to remind you all ... 😊

    I was at a friend's house yesterday and he's lived there for 7 years and never noticed that his Viburnum B. Dawn is scented.

    I still have fuchsias, chaenomeles and marigolds in flower, and the winter jasmine is covered in yellow stars.  At the park, we have mahonia and a hebe that thinks it's summer.

    As well as the usual winter-flowering shrubs, hellebores etc., three summer border perennials still enjoying a second, late flowering are Helenium Waltraut, Salvia Caradonna and Achillea Safran.

    Lawn daisies, Dandelions, Vinca, Hellebore and Primrose plus the odd bit of rose, honeysuckle and Jasmine and a weary valerian.
    Next year will be much improved ( she says hopefully).

    Viburnum b. and primroses are definitely out but I think anything else provided a midnight feast for a muntjac a couple of nights ago🤬 Still not sure how he got in but he cleared the fence with ease when I went out in the morning....

    Jasmine nudiflorum in full flower, then in the glasshouse Argyranthems, looking pretty, and a multi stemmed geranium, took the flower heads off Penstemons the other day to conserve strength

    A couple of camellias, and in the pots by the door, some winter pansies, violas and polyanthus.

    My roses had a mixture of buds and flowers morning - The Simple Life, Olivia Rose Austin and a very old shrub rose - but I've since been out and nipped them all off. My anemone Wild Swan has one flower. Viburnum, winter jasmine, hellebores (Christmas rose) and daphne eternal fragrance are all covered in flowers.
