Pretty in pink.........

  It is raining, what a change from a week ago.    The garden shows no sign of waking up at the moment.
So I cheated, took myself off to the flower market and bought some oriental hellebore.
I just needed some colour..............

Frozen

 The garden has been frozen for days.   Surely the temperatures will rise a little to allow a thaw.
 At this moment Spring seems a lifetime away.
 The house is cold.    The log store is half empty.   Keeping an open fire going during these cold days is necessary.
 I wonder which plants  will survive these prolonged temperatures.
 It is the tropical garden I am most concerned about.
For now, it is time to sit in front of the fire with a good book and a nice cup of tea.
