well we have sun,

blue sky,


and daffodils!

Well OK I cheated on the daffodils, hubby bought them for me at Christmas and they are in flower already!!!
We did not celebrate Christmas or New Year as both K and I had the most awful flu, she went back to work last week and managed one day, and has been off sick since. I am still bad and have the most awful cough which rattles my brain, inside my head (where else would it be?)and gives me the most awful headaches. Plus my pelvic floor has given up hope, but that is another tale.

So when the sun came out today I wandered down the garden, popped my head in the greenhouse, as I haven't been near it since about the 24th December, checked the lowest temp it had been since then 3C, and watered a few things.

I believe the tube heaters have helped to keep a more steady temp.

the brugs still have leaves on? This always amazes me as since they have been in the greenhouse they have not had a drop of water.

Bit of colour from my bromeliad.

I am so pleased I brought the Tree Ferns in, you can see the new crosiers already.

The Strelitzia/Bird of Paradise plants I bought into the house seem to have fared alot better than they do when they are in the Greenhouse over winter, I even have a new shoot on one of them...

Maybe its a false spring, but it is definately far better than all the rain and grey days we have been having, with loads more to come next week!! I much prefer the snow and ice at least the days seem brighter with the snow


  1. Nice to see those healthy looking crosiers on you DA, and the sunny shot!

    It's been grey and wet this morning but the same came out in the afternoon so managed to do some tidying up!

  2. We finally had a little snow, but today the sun is shining too.
    I'm sorry to hear that you and K have been so ill.
    I hope you will soon feel better. Looking at those glorious daffodils will help I'm sure. Belated Happy New Year..
