However, the photos I took today are giving me some consolation as I haven't had a stroll around my garden for ages and was quite pleasantly surprised.
These pansies are on our front porch and were planted last Summer
How they've survived the battering winds and rain that we've endured
this winter, I'll never know
This Hebe looks like this all year round and is beginning to flower
(can you see the merest of mere white stuff on the lawn?)
Another favourite - Hebe with Euonymous
This ornamental grass has been in a pot on my front garden for donkeys of years
but still manages to put on a brave face - I love the colour
This evergreen Rhododendron always comes up trumps and looks so pretty in May
So, that's my non-snowy, unseasonal winter garden. However, as we speak, I've just spoken to my sister Barbara who tells me that the weather forecast is predicting heavy snow showers this weekend -so watch this space.!
I'd like to give a warm welcome to my new followers - Liz, Vanessa, Perpetua, Joy, Rosemary, Lacy Crochet and Kristie. Thank you for joining me, it's lovely having you aboard.
Bye for now
Have a lovely Wednesday evening and keep warm.
