Flowers - February 18th 2012
These brave little irises have come out in the past few day, nestling around the base of an old pink rose at the corner of the drive. They are the second flowers in our garden for this year - the snowdrops have been out since the beginning of January (they were late this year; normally we have snowdrops round the base of the apple tree for Christmas Day). It's raining at the moment, or I would nip down and add a picture of the snowdrops to this post.
I thought I would keep an informal record of the flowers in the garden this year. I think the next one due to appear is the Forsythia - a beacon of bright yellow at the bottom of the garden. Should be out soon.
