Even though our 'winter' weather has been very mild, I haven't been in the garden much over the last two months. Daylight is shorter and I suppose I've been caught up with other things.
There still hasn't been a hard frost, so some of the summer plants are still flowering.
For example, the white flowered begonia (pictured) hasn't yet died back. This is unexpected for this time of year.
|A trailing Summer bedding plant is still thriving (above). I'm not sure, but I think this is trailing verbena.|
|Another begonia still in flower, albeit looking a bit shabby.|
|Another surprise - this azalea usually flowers at Easter. It has decided to flower now! This hasn't happened before.|
|Lastly - isn't Pampas Grass quite striking this time of year - especially against a blue sky!|
Hope your garden has brought you some unexpected surprises this year!
