Today more of the snow has disappeared but remains is hard crusty ice! The peas and broad beans remain completely buried under their blanket of snow; the Pak Choi under its cover of fleece looks fine. More snow is forecast during the night followed by rain and a rise in temperature so hopefully these will be the last of the images of my snowy garden ( I do hope I’m not talking too soon). All the images were taken yesterday 27th February.
In some places the snow is still quite thick
but in the sun especially where there is gravel it has melted
The cut flower beds with some of the later Narcissus showing their foliage
This Hyacinth seems to have shrugged off the snow
I don’t remember ever seeing icicles here!
Another Hyacinth showing it is tough and can withstand the snow and the cold temperatures
There is a crocus hiding under the Hyacinth foliage!
Most of the Hyacinths planted in 2016 grow with two flower stems
Hopefully the buds on the wisteria which were already beginning to swell have survived the cold. I can also see that the buds on Clematis armandii won’t be long before they open
Keep warm everyone, spring will soon be here.
