No, not me, I’m still safely tucked up at home, I mean my first narcissus, Rijnveld’s Early Sensation which has always been out by Christmas Day in previous years. This time though it was still in tight bud by the end of the year and has only just opened now. It is strange that it is late when most of the special snowdrops are early.
More and more snowdrops are opening in the back garden and the woodland, they seem to grow visibly each day. It just needs to be a couple of degrees warmer and they will open up.
I have been so busy lately working in the woodland, getting ready for Snowdrop Time. My visitors from the village won’t be able to come but I will do a virtual tour for them via my blog. Normally I have help from my gardener getting everything ready but my present gardener has taken two months holiday, he normally goes to New Zealand for 2 months each Jan and Feb, but even though he can’t travel at the moment, he has still taken the time off and left me to it ! No, I’m not pleased but think I will have everything done just in time.
All the bulbs and flowers bring me out into the garden each day to see what has popped its head up overnight, thank goodness I have to garden to keep me sane during lockdown. I hope you are all coping, please all stay safe.
