Missed: Garden Bloggers’ Bloomday January

Having been grounded internetwise because of a nasty computer virus and more than enough work making it impossible to set up my system at once (isn’t it funny how computer crashes always happen at the worst possible time) I totally missed out on Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day.

Because of the unusually mild temperatures there are still some things blooming in the garden, such as the primroses and some pansies; and the hellebores have already raised their heads. However, it hasn’t been much use taking photos because of the frequent rain. Particularly the primroses don’t enjoy being watered all the time from above; the petals have all gone grey and mushy.

So let’s just wait for better times. The first snowdrops are putting their heads up; and I’ve already spotted some crocus leaves. So in February I may be able to show off again. Still, I wouldn’t mind a week of severe frost, which would help to kill off at least some of the baby slugs and the aphids on my spruces that are having a good time in this mild weather.
