Six on Saturday – 19th February 2022

Seeing other Six on Saturday participants popping into my reader box, I feel the urge to get gardening, except it is very , very, wet and for the last few days stormy too! But then this morning we had SNOW! There was only a little and it quickly started to melt, but it makes the garden look pretty even if underneath everything is sodden. Many thanks for our host “The Propagator” for hosting Six on Saturday. Check out the participation guide.

First this week a friendly garden robin (my daughter calls him Timmy), puffed up against the cold.

Next, daffodils, tete-a-tete, copying with a dusting on snow.

Third, frog spawn in garden pond – also trying to cope with slushy snow. Frogs arrived, like last year, in time for Valentines day. So far numbers are low, thirty at most, but hopefully more will come after this cold spell.

Fourth, hazel catkins with melting snow.

Fifth, willow catkins. The last few years these seem to acome earlier and earlier. There are even some green leaves on this Salix rubra.

And finally this week – snowdrops in snow.

      Yes weather is all over the place. We are to have rain for the next 24 hours too. At least the frogs will like it better than the snow

      It was same last year but earlier than previous years. There has been more activity in pond today with some new spawn which will hopefully not have to suffer further snow
