Winter Blooms

DSCF0008 (2)
Brrrrrr … twas freezing today.
The coldness of the soil was seeping through my wellies.
It’s almost time to bed down for winter.
But there’s still signs of summer in the Tidy garden to warm my cockles.
Brightest of all is the Calendula, still going strong despite the frosts.
Pretty in pink, Erodium ‘Roseum’. I picked up several (ahem!) of these for £1.50 a pot & they’ve spread so well. Great for filling a bare patch, subtle, delicate & beautiful.

I’m not sure what rose this is, it’s been moved around the garden so many times.
But it’s clearly happy now.
And ‘Happy’ is the general feeling in the Tidy Garden at the mo’.
Regular stalkers followers (and Mr TG) will know that I’m a bit of a fidget in the garden, always redesigning, moving, plotting n’ planning.
Huge excitement & changes are afoot and all will be revealed soon. All I can say is ‘greenhouse’…… DARN! I’ve said too much!!!

How lucky you are to still have beautiful blooms! You definitely have a green thumb!

Ohh…greenhouse! You must obviously have upstaged from your black plastic shelves…wish I could say the same, but nope, still got my shelves and my garden is still postage stamp size so there won’t be room for any buildings in mine! Looking forward to seeing what you got planned. I also have some flowers hanging about, no frost in my garden yet, just a few above zero some nights but Mr Frost has so far kept away. I am still outside as often as I can, plenty to do!

Jane wished you lived closer to me so you could help with my gardening (I hate it) not green fingered at all. My garden is looking a bit tired and sad. Love Alison xxx

Beautiful winter blooms, Jane. Love the rose! It's nice to have a happy rose in the garden, isn't it? Oh, I can hardly wait to see the greenhouse! I'm on "Jane's Greenhouse Watch." I enjoyed your lovely post. :-)

P.S. I love "The Tidy Van" on your sideboard. That's so cool! You've got the gardening life, my friend! :-)
