Wet and windy

The first fortnight of 2007 has been very wet,windy and mild. Some snowdrops and hellebores already open ! I saw some daffodils in flower today - not in my garden but just up the road. They are snuggled away just behind a wall. I remember thinking that they were early last year but not as early as this. On telling himself of the daffodils he told me that he saw a flash of yellow by the stream yesterday. Maybe an aconite. Surely not a daffodil. I am off come first light to have a reccie. Will report back.

New Year's Day 2007

Last night's threatened gale force winds did not materialise I am glad to say. New Year's Day started bright and sunny but went downhill. Rain and hail the order of the afternoon and the evening. I have not had a chance to sort out seeds or order but have planted some daff bulbs albeit late on in the day. They had already started to sprout. I also planted up an amaryllis. Back to work tomorrow.
