With little knowledge, I'm slowly turning an acre field into a garden! This is my first gardening attempt, so there's such a lot to learn! 🐝🦋🌻

To think that four months ago I would have said no to having one of these in the garden Sylvia, now I love them. I've only got a small one but I think I may get a couple more later on this year. 😊😊😊

I don't blame you @pelly I have four now but this one has by far been the most stunning!

This skimmia has given me colour in this border all winter but it's so full of buds, it's going to be brilliant when it flowers! 😃

@titchyfra hope you're doesn't fly off in a storm. I thought I was being clever putting it in a heavy pot that wouldn't get blown over I didn't think it would get ripped out leaving the roots behind 😢

@columbiariver morning laura! We have intermittent frost but nothing on the scale of what you have! We've had a couple of -6 at worst this winter but generally not as cold as that, just murky and wet. I love clear frosty mornings! Had a beautiful day here yesterday after a clear frosty night! 😃 how is it with you? Any change?

Hi sylvia. I'm really happy to report that our snow and ice are nearly gone. Temps are up *40 degrees from a week ago! Soon things will be popping up and rhodies will start blooming. But we have the rainy months to get thru.

There is light though! Same here, no doubt rainy months to come, probably when the poor lambs are born! I have to say it's been a fairly dry winter to date I think! 😃 @columbiariver
