Last year we were in the grips of winter with freezing cold temperatures while this year we've had days when the temperatures have reached double figures. This means that I now have Cyclamen, Sarcococca, Lenten Roses and winter heather almost ready to open their buds.
While a winter flowering primula just recently planted is already in bloom in the garden.

Hamamelis JelenaLast month I mentioned that the first of the first of the Witch-hazels Hamamelis x intermedia 'Jelena' was starting to unfurl. A month later and the bare branches are now full of little 'streamer like' flowers. Last December the flowers were not out as far as this for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.
A View from AboveFinally here's a glimpse of part of the garden from above. There are still plenty of seed heads in the garden and when the sun shines these take on a new dimension when viewed up close. You can see what I'm referring to in my previous December post - Fading Beauty.
