Well its snowing again in Sheffield. The weather here has been truly miserable for weeks. However have been really cheered up this morning as the first seeds sown in my propagator this year [ Agastache, Scabious "Chile Black" and Gaura ] have just germinated. This has given me a huge lift and the feeling that the growing year has really started. New life is wonderful.

    Yesterday I noticed little fat buds on the Clematis Armandii that is in the shelter of the west facing house wall image  Can't wait to smell that scent again.

    Yes, come on spring. There are alliums and crocosmia I think growing through and the garlic is looking good. It has snowed very discreetly this p.m. but I want to be out thereimage gardening!

  • Yes - come on spring. My Hellebore are beautiful. Even my snowdrops haven't opened yet
