Although after this weekend we’re supposed to have temperatures in a more normal range (highs around 10 Celcius, 50 Fahrenheit), today and this past week we’ve broken a few records for daytime heat. The result has been an explosion of colour in my garden. While last week I had only the last of the of snowdrops and the odd Crocus, today I have a dozen additional flower types in bloom. Every Saturday, The Propagator encourages gardeners around the world to share just six things that are happening in their garden; here’s my contribution this week.
Daffodils have started in earnest. Just above is a patch of smallish ones, likely ‘Jetfire’. Above them is a row of mini daffs – ‘Tete a Tete’, and at the very top of the post, plus below, is one of the larger daffs, variety unknown. The stalks on this one should be a lot taller but for some reason, perhaps the heat, the buds opened while the stalks were just six or seven inches off the ground. Weird. Much like a lot of stuff this past year! Anyway, rain forecast for tomorrow so I need to spend sunrise to sundown today in the garden cleaning up. Stay safe everyone and enjoy the outdoors, wherever you are!
