ROUNDING THE CIRCLE
So our daughter Cat and her partner Brad are in The Falkland Islands…that is bringing back so many memories. Memories of the Camp, the wildlife and the vivid gardens full of sun loving annuals.
The Falkland Islands were sunny, cool and windy too of course but I remember many, many sunny days.
The catalogue cover that Cat has done is great, showing three wonderful Falkland icons , Rockhopper Penguins an Islander plane and the Falkland island slipper plant Calceolaria fothergillii.
Our trips to New Zealand continue too, and so our love affair with the southern hemisphere goes on.
Back here on Loch Ness it has been an extraordinary mild winter. We have been spared much of the rain and storms that have plagued the south of England and Wales. It will be very interesting to see how things grow away, with so little check to their growth.
The February garden is a delight of snowdrops, snowflakes and the Daphne bholua sends a long trail of intoxicating scent along the pathways. The evergreens are slick and healthy and the flower buds on the Rhododendrons and Camellias are fat and full of promise, the soil is heaving with bulbs emerging as we move the leaf fall aside.
Spring is on the move.
