snowdrops sprouting


Just taken a tour of the garden. It is amazing how many things are starting to grow already.
Many bulbs are well up: daffodils and narcissus, dwarf irises, snowdrops..

Some shrubs and plants are starting to grow already – I hope they don’t get too damaged by frost or snow.

  1. Hello Annette
    Good to see the plants in your Aberdeen garden making growth already.
    I will watch your garden and blog develop over the coming months. Its already feeling like visiting myself.
    I will add your blog to my list.

    • Thanks for your visit Alistair – it should be interesting for us to compare how plants are progressing in Aberdeen and Cheshire. Unless the climate does very strange things I think yours will win!

  2. Annette, my first visit to your blog (popped over from Alistair’s blog). My garden down here in Edinburgh is at a similar stage.
    I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of your garden as the year moves forward. Happy New Year!

    • Hi Angie,
      Happy New Year to you too!
      So glad you popped over. I have just had a quick look at your blog and see you have been doing it a lot longer than me – the blog that is – I think I can claim more years of gardening. Not that that makes me an expert – there is always so much more to learn, but that’s why gardening never gets boring. I am looking forward to having a good look at your blog and website. Keep in touch.

Please leave a comment - I would love to hear from you.
