A Slight Improvement

Temperatures have gradually crept up over the course of the day to around 4°C by late afternoon, and the snowdrops were indeed quick to respond, picking themselves up, dusting themselves down and bobbing about as if they had never had a week of sprawling face down in the frozen dirt. Hellebores, however, are a little more cautious and as you can see from the clump in the top right of the photo are not quite certain that it’s the right thing to do quite yet. With temperatures in double figures tomorrow, things will be different again, and I will postpone the proposed video tour of the winter delights of the garden for a couple more days.

  1. You were absolutely right, Cathy, that the snowdrops would recover as soon as temperatures rose and the snow disappeared. The hellebores are taking a little longer, but I’m sure they will fully recover. Love it. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita.

    i so wish I could grow snowdrops. I just love them. I’ll enjoy yours with you. 🙂
