January Bliss

Amaryllis Alfresco
Russian Blues Merlin (l) and his Mum Delia
Tasty & colourful salad from my potager today
My tree is still there to brighten up my day
Harvested last October and still going strong
Winter Jasmin
Colour your garden with vegetables
The potager today
. Hellebore Emma, named after my beloved Russian Blue kittycat
Cheap and cheerful!
Witch hazel
The greenhouse lives up to its name
Jeeves taking a snooze in my toasty greenhouse

January dull and grey? Cold even?
Not today! During a sunny spell temperatures reached an almost summer-y 17.6 C (63.68F) in the unheated greenhouse.Not bad eh? Jeeves & I spend a pleasant few hours there, he mostly snoozing, me mostly pottering. So you see, a colourful and gardening filled January is possible. Sometimes!

Before I forget: a very happy and healthy New Year to you and yours! XXX
