Having breakfast this morning and gazing out of the window. Sunshine flooding into the room.
Noticed that the Lonicera fragrantissima has three bumble bees working the flowers.
2015 has been the hottest year on record, for the planet.
Same with our hedgehog still wandering round at night,and snowdrops are showing through.
Not a sign in itself, but as part of a pattern it may well be.
A couple of my Autumn planted broad beans started to show flowers. A cold snap sorted them out.
Yeah jo47 !! What are we like ??
Glorious morning in Notts, so what's a gal to do? Of course, wander round the 'estate' with one's coffee and pick off those few stems on the last of the perennials to fade. What did the gal do? Spent 2 hours doing said picking off, then gathering leaves, weeding for goodness' sake, staking up the 2 delphiniums that have taken it into their heads to flower, wondered at the photinia that is suddenly growing again, reminding the lupins that regrowing in December is not a good idea, more weeding - and still a load to do! Oh yes, and the coffee went cold...As the rain is coming in tonight (again!), I'd better fuel up and get out there again this aft. Ah, the Brits and their gardens!!
Just walked passed the local pub and thir daffodils are in full flower.
I've still got Calendula, Sweet William and Nasturtium in flower and at least a couple of Bumble bees doing the biz on the Fatsia flowers. Lobelias too don't seem willing to accept it is now December. At least the winter honeysuckle has it's dates right tho....plenty of flowers out and more to come
