Had a little amble round the garden this afternoon and couldn't believe some of the flowers that are still out. I've got yellow gladioli, carnations and roses. Several Polyanthus in full bloom and even my primroses are out. I'd got several bulbs still to plant (I know I'm very late) and on planting them in some tubs I noticed all the Gypsophila shooting. I expect we'll have a really cold spell which will knock them all back but its lovely to see flowers at this time of year.

I've a few roses trying to open - I cut one bud and brought it in. Now it's a lovely yellow flower, but I forget it's name. There's a single flower, now rather withered and past its best, on rosa Dublin Bay, too. Beside it, a couple of days ago there was a single blue sweetpea flower. I'm sure it was the last of them.
Elsewhere there is a white hellebore in flower and some cyclamen and the bulbs are starting to show their green shoots. I enjoyed prowling around the garden the other day, cutting holly and ivy and cotoneaster for decorations. Great berries this year and I've been able to supply a couple of other houses as well.
