I am now back from a few days away over Christmas visiting my daughter and her family, having had a wonderful time and being thoroughly spoilt with fantastic food each day. Driving there and back in torrential rain, mist and spray was rather worrying at the time but when I got back, found the garden flooded once more, everywhere is absolutely sodden. In spite of this I managed to get out yesterday to take some photos and found a few surprises waiting for me.
No 1 Camellia Donation
No 2 Galanthus Faringdon double
No 3 Euonymous europaeus.

No 5 Iris unguicularis

The weather here in the SW of England has been very mild, we haven’t had our first frost yet. I know some plants flower depending on the length of daylight and some on temperature but do any need a spell of frost to trigger forming flower buds? We usually have a frost in November and I’m wondering if that is why some of my flowers are so behind, my Narcissus Rijnvelds Early Sensation are way behind , no sign of any flower buds yet, never mind flowers and normally they are flowering by Christmas, can any of you help?
Thanks to Jon The Propagator for hosting once more and Best Wishes to you all for a Happy and Healthy 2022.
