I went out yesterday to take photos for today’s post for GBBD, thank goodness I did as we had a hard frost last night and flowers are not looking too happy this morning. I could only go round half the garden. Anywhere that meant I had to go on the grass ( except the back lawn over to the woodland) was out of bounds as it is so boggy, even though it is frozen,I might disappear, never to be seen again!.
Starting by the back door, the Chaenomeles is still flowering and has been for months now. Not quite so many flowers, but still plenty of buds.
Hellebores in the front by the drive. These aren’t looking at all happy with the frost overnight.
Snowdrops and Primroses by the driveway.
Snowdrops and Cornus.
Moving round to the back garden, snowdrops and Primula.
Winter flowering heather.
Euphorbia mellifera still flowering.
Flowerbed in front of the woodland with snowdrops, hellebores, narcissus, cyclamen, pulmonaria and a plant pot, how did that get there?
Pulmonaria in the ditch.
Cyclamen coum in the ditch.

The sun might have peeped through, but the wind was icy, Crocus tommasinianus flowers are staying tightly shut.
Scilla siberica starting to flower.
Snowdrop hill at the end of the woodland with snowdrops, hellebores, iris reticulata and crocus.

I didn’t dare go any further, I was sinking in to the grass too far as it was, goodness knows what is happening in the other half of the garden, maybe one day I will find out. At least it wasn’t raining yesterday, so I was able to get out and take a few photos, this is now the second day for ages that we haven’t had rain!
Many thanks must go to Carol at May Dreams Garden for hosting this monthly meme for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, please pay her a visit and see what is flowering in other parts of the world today.
