Chimonanthus Praecox

No snowdrops yet, it’s been too cold, but on the bare twigs of the chimonanthus praecox hangs a promise of Spring. Wintersweet I adore you!

And here is the new garlic, undeterred by last night’s frost

and here will be daffodils

In the meantime the kitchen is swamped with the smell of bitter Seville Oranges – the aroma of January in England

First batch being inspected. More to come.
