Six on Saturday, a Quick Fly Past…

Early hellebore buds above, and snowdrop shoots (these are G ‘John Long’) below:

Bags of leaves ready to be watered, spiked and left behind the bothy till 2023:

Part of last week’s IAVOM, those tiny specks of colour on Hamamelis ‘Orange Peel’ have, to my surprise, opened up fully:

With its destined home not prepared, my only bare root rose (climbing rose Duke of York) purchaseย  of the season has been heeled into one of the cutting beds:

A largely unexpected fall of snow last Sunday afternoon left the garden looking briefly picturesque:

Thanks to Jon the Propagator for hosting this weekly meme and do try and make the time to visit his blog to see more sixes from across the blogging globe.

    Spiked leaves? What is that?

    Your hellebore is early and I love your snowy photo, very pretty! We just managed hail and slush today, not as pretty as your snow.

    Today is St Barbara’s day when we traditionally cut a branch to bring indoors to flower by Christmasโ€ฆ. usually cherry or forsythia, but today I also read you can do it with witchhazel too! So that is the confirmation. Won’t be cutting any off my small tree yet though. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  5. Snow and flowers! A beautiful post. ๐Ÿ™‚ You’ve had more snow already than we’ve had here in my part of the Upper Midwest U.S.!

    OH MY! SNOW! Well, I suppose it is December. I should not be surprised. I should be in the Pacific Northwest now, so might see some snow while there. (I was supposed to be there and back by now.) Snow sure looks interesting, but I do not believe that I would enjoy it for long. I remember that it is cold and wet and eventually gets sort of icky.
