Hello gardeners.

I've started a new thread for this year and hope to join you there throughout the coming year.

My vegetable garden has onions and garlic growing - recently buried in snow. Not a lot to do in it at the moment. The fallen apples are being left for the birds.

Hello Frank. Good to see you here. Yes, definitely. You can "christen" them for me as we don't have ice or snow at the moment, thank goodness. :) Seems daft to be wanting that sort of weather to try them out.

I expect Carole has her less hardy potted plants under cover. Won't be long before the spring!

Tickles for Jaki.

Here are the ice cleats.

Hello Frank :)

Crocuses, lovely! They'll soon be in flower. There are little green shoots coming up here, too.

I'm just abou to to reccy the vegetable garden. Not looked at it for a week or so. Pretty sodden with all the rain we've had.

I visited a garden centre yesterday when visiting the town of Malmesbury. There's a lovely Abbey church there and the beautiful Abbey gardens (privately owned) that are open to the public from March to November and we plan to visit it then. It's been on the TV and will be very worth seeing.

I was given some garlic to plant - the sort where you harvest and eat the whole clove at one time - they look like little snowballs. :)

Hope Liverpool improve soon or you will be cross!!

I can't believe you guys are already talking about spring! The worst part of our winter hasn't even hit here yet. :( We'll see that closer to February, until then it's pretty hard to think spring here.

Hello folks. :)

I no longer have a greenhouse - it's gone to a good home, though. :)

There are snowdrops and crocuses in flower here. We've had some mild weather but there was a frost this morning - the day turning into a nice sunny one but not warm.

I have men working on re-grouting the house walls and they're trampling all over my plants! Good thing that a lot of the growth is not up yet.

Hi Penny & Everyone, :D

Good to see the garden thread running again, :D

I can well imagine Spring can't come soon enough for you all over there with all the snow you've had.

We have had such a wet Summer it has been very tropical for Melbourne, my plants have gone mad with growth & the Cannas are about seven feet tall this year.
My SIL in Queensland has had her garden & trees flattened by the Cyclone though, :( but at least the house isn't badly damaged & they survived without injury.

Here's some of my flowers in bloom at present ......

Hello Yvonne. Lovely to hear from you and see your lovely flowers - they've brightened my day. :)

I've a springer spaniel staying for a month while his owners are in your country, they're in Perth and said they just missed the tail end of the cyclone last week. I'm sorry to hear of the damage to your friend's garden. Thank goodness they and the house are all right.

Here's hoping for more seasonal weather for you.

Hi gang, I've missed you. Where I have been living for the last couple of years has simply not been able to sustain a garden. However, I will be moving in a couple of weeks, and think I will again be able to garden.

Yvonne, your photos were luscious.

You can take the greenhouse from the gardener, but you can't take gardening from Penny.

Hello, Eggy. Good to see you here again. Good luck with the move and I hope you'll have a garden to enjoy.

A wet day here, today, so nothing much could be done outside. The men are still working on re-pointing the house. Won't I be glad when it's all finished! The noise is beginning to wear me down. Anyway, it's quiet now they've finished for the day.

My neighbour saw an article about rare snowdrops, for which a lot of money could be asked, and wondered if her's in her garden were some of those! I doubt it very much, though. :)

I passed through a village yesterday and there were drifts of snowdrops on all the verges and banks. It was very pretty.

The hazel is in catkin and looking very striking.

Glad the flowers brought you cheer, ...... pleased your friends missed the Cyclone, .......
at least my rellie's garden will grow back quickly in the tropical climate.

More rain here today, it saves me watering at least, :D

Glad you enjoyed them Bruce, ...... it will be great to get your fingers in the dirt again & see the fruits of your labour, :D
