Well 2012 is behind us & 2013 is starting out very mild, I see the bulbs are already poking their little heads out of the ground. I remember this last year & then it got cold in February so I wonder if the same will happen this year. The Hellebores are starting to show their flowers too, always a lovely sign & I have seen some snowdrops showing too. The witch hazel in my my mums garden always puts on a good show & I shall put some pics up of some traditional yellow witch hazel.

I wonder if this year will be mild/cloudy & wet as climate change seems to suggest – REALLY HOPE NOT!

Lots of clearing still to be done in the gardens ready for Spring.
