How can something so lovely as this be so fertile? Galanthus "Godfrey Owen" is delectable and I have posted about it before. My original bulbs have increased so well they provide a lovely present. My brother in law keeps me posted on just how well his is doing. I'll convert him to the ranks of the galanthophiles yet.
And it is difficult to miss the witch hazels. They are a fine sight from our front room and, as here, in close-up. Their scent may be faint in the cold air though no less precious for that.
Clematis "Winter Beauty" is clambering over the trees. I cut it down two years ago and it threw a sulk. It seems to have recovered its confidence.
But the cyclamens are showing even here.
Then there's that excitement as some of last year's acquisitions promise snowdrop heaven. Galanthus 'Bertha' was obtained from Joe Sharman and named after his dog. I'll feature it as it unfurls.
