Spring gifts

Galanthus nivalis 'Flore Pleno' and Eranthis.
We've had remarkable weather. In all the years we have been in our house, I do not recall such warm temperatures at this time of year. Gardeners across the City are commenting on the surprising things happening in their yards. It is all the more astonishing considering we've had roller coaster temperatures all winter (not to mention our freak snow storm at the beginning of last September). I really expected many things to have perished with little snow and fluctuations of expected below -20ºC one week and Chinook induced 17ºC the next.

Surprise and more reflection

If you follow me on Instagram, or are a member of my garden interested family, you will already have seen the photo of my surprising little snowdrop. I stumbled upon it last Friday and I was so glad I was home to see it because the following day it was covered with snow and less than spring-like temperatures.
