Unlike last year, when there was nothing flowering in my garden in the middle of January, this year the mild weather over Christmas has meant that Spring has come early.
The cyclamen coum are clumping up nicely. I'll leave the leaf mulch around these while they're flowering as raking it out would destroy the flowers, but when they have finished, i'll clear the soil, so that they can seed.
And there is a touch of colour on the Hellebores, which i've taken all the tatty leaves off to encourage them to flower.
Amazingly there are also some other odd specks of colour in the garden
Looking through the other GBBD posts at the May Dream Gardens i'm not the only one with flowers further ahead than normal, so pop over to Carol's site to see what's blooming around the world
