I could only light the candle once inside, the wind is fierce today.
Happy Sixth Blogging Anniversary Cathy!!
This is where the hellebores came from this morning
and the hebe
Other flowers had snowy hats on too
The hyacinth above is my entry into Cee’s Flower of the Day.
Not exactly Easter Island weather
and this dear little pot seems to have a white fluffy stole on to keep warm
Pop over to Cathy’s and see what others have found to pop in a vase this Monday.

Last year I bought a teeny tiny peach tree online. Variety: Bonanza.
Look at the amazing blossom on it – what a pink! Those flowers look like they should glow in the dark.
It is supposed to be a patio peach tree that you can grow …well on a patio – in a pot.
My thinking was that if I planted the tree in the garden, it would grow a bit bigger than it would in a pot, but not too big for the small, south facing space I made ready for it.
However it does look ridiculously small in its shelter.
The corrugated clear plastic roof is to keep the rain off to prevent leaf curl – so far so good. The roof tilts slightly to the right and the rain drips into the black container (a bin from an old sit on mower I once had) and hey presto that keeps the ground from getting sodden in one place and provides water for watering the peach tree – that’s permaculture in action right there!
I hope it does grow a bit bigger, do you think it will?
