My passion in life is gardening and specifically growing flowers from seed

Month: January, 2017

First flower in my garden this year 

A very quick blog today to show the first flowers to appear in my garden today – some baby iris.

Happy new year 

So another year has finished and Christmas and new year celebrations ended. My trees will both be tidied away tomorrow for another 11 months or so – it comes round so fast can’t I just leave them out but not decorated! It’s not a job I enjoy.

This month is not a colourful one in my garden at all! Therefore my ‘what’s flowering in my garden’ post is a difficult one. I’ve got some houseplants including this poinsettia that we somehow managed to keep alive by putting it in the dark somewhere over the summer and it has a few red leaves 

A big thank you to my readers from all over the globe from America to Australia and in between. I had over 1,000 views of my blog last year. Please feel free to leave comments, share with friends, ask questions etc.
