Although I know full well it’s been a mild winter so far, I still got quite a shock when I popped outside to see my jasmine actually in flower…on January 5th…!!
The geraniums are still hanging on in there, albeit looking a little worse for wear, along with the remaining lobelias.
This all looks very strange when you look around and see that there’s not a leaf left on the forsythia and the winter pansies are out.
Obviously, one sharp frost will put an end to them, but for now I shall continue to be impressed…
