Through the Garden Gate January 2019

I haven't been in the garden very much in the past few weeks, it has either been too cold or wet. After heavy rain yesterday I was beginning to wonder whether I would get any images for this month! I was relieved therefore to see clearer skies this morning. Although the distant hills were covered in a thin cover of white, the only white in the garden was from the first blooms from these snowdrops.



Other plants flowering in the garden is rosemary and hellebores...



Hebe


Primrose - primula rosa - the name in Latin means "first rose",  it's flowering is meant to signify that spring is on it's way, they aren't aware of  the current weather forecasts of more freezing weather!  A  bulk order of manure has been made so I know we will be spending more time in the garden next month!

 What are the highlights in your garden this month?

It is always wonderful to see other gardens and watch their development during the year. If you want to join in with Through the garden gate each month please let me know in the comments below and I will add your site.

  2. OH talk about weather....I don't know if you've heard about the Polar Vortex here in the Midwest and Northeast of the USA, but the extreme temperatures have left us still, frozen and locked up in our homes! Dreams of gardening are keeping us in a daze and longing for warmer weather! We are however, going to make a 100 degree shift to rain on Sunday. Now, that is very strange! Hoping to see some daffodils spring up sometime in mid-April!

  5. I love your snowdrops ... I always think of them as the bravest little flowers coming up while it is still freezing cold! Another favourite for me are primroses. Happy gardening.

  6. I'm so happy to see these lovely photos. The Hellebore - dreamy! I wanted to join along, but alas, our gardens are months away from waking up. I'll be content for now enjoying your garden and other readers that join along showing theirs. Kim

  8. Have you seen any bumblebees on sunny days? Your hebe and rosemary might be their targets?

    1. I haven't had time to look will definitely make some time to notice once the snow has gone! The weather forecast was obviously more accurate than the primroses! Sarah x
