So I have been missing from the Six on Saturday slot for a while. All has been quiet in the garden, but things are beginning to stir. (Apologies for picture quality this week – photos taken with phone and not camera).
Look – the first snowdrops!
And the first hellebore.
Under the shelter of the porch, two foxgloves have decided to self-seed.
We have a new bird bath. Our wild birds often use the pond for a wash, but hoping they will like this too.
They may wait for warmer weather though. We had the tiniest sprinkling of snow this morning, over frost. Hoping for a little bit more tomorrow.
Definitely the time of year for potato and leek soup.
Thank you to The Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday.
