    If the weather stays like this, I will not be going out.

    I think it's to be a bit better by Sunday @punkdoc, although I'm not holding my breath  ;)
    I think we have snow in the forecast for here, so I might not be able to see anything anyway. Possibly a few native primulas in flower, and I know there's a dark hellebore in flower just now. That'll be about it for me!

    Today’s the day!  Brolly at the ready … but first a strong hot coffee …

    I'll have a look when it's light, but I'll just have to remember what there is, and it's what I said the other day- the native prims and a Hellebore. Everything's covered in a small layer of snow/ice.
    I think there's a few flowers on the Mahonia that had more protection.
    Most of my garden has evergreens for winter, so that's the main interest until crocus etc  :)

    My count is too easy this year.  Just moved into a new build so back garden is a mudbath with a generous helping of hardcore and the front is landscaped pretty unimagitively with grass surrounded by photinia.
    There I'm done.
