Flowers and produce in the garden plus greenhouse for Christmas ( a bit late ).
Above is a Fresia from bulbs in the greenhouse more flower stems to open later.
Winter flowering Honeysuckle, this also gives off a sweet scent.
Witchhazel I also have a Yellow one in a pot but it is still in bud only.
A climbing Rose, this bud will probably not open and the frosts will kill it but it looks very nice.Back to the geenhouse this is a flower bud on my Lemon tree there are a lot more comming now, they will take most of the year to turn into Lemons and will be ready for picking in 18 months time, that is if the Squirrel will leave them on the tree. This last year he took 2 large ones and a number of small ones off and just left them around the garden.
Below are a few more pictures of plants in the garden that are giving a bit of pleasure to the Winter gloom.Catkins on a crooked Hazel tree, Teasel heads left for the birds, Azalea buds that will open later in the year to a Orange colour ( the plant is many years old ), Lichen growing on the Azalia shrub,
Now for some funny veg straight out of the garden.
Parsnips, Carrots, Radish Black Spanish, they are sown end July beginning August and are ready in the winter. They grow to a good size ( tennis ball size ), but this one is twice the size. All you have to do is peel the outside skin and slice, grate or whtever you do with your normal raddish the are solid all way through.
Sorry I’m late with this blog but hope that it will give you something to think about for your next years garden.
