One day it will stop raining?

DSC01710The stream is up again, the test holes in the lawn we bored a few feet deep are full to the brim with groundwater except the one closest to the house. Snowdrops are flooded out again, but seemingly not so much the worst for it. February fill garden (again!).  Yesterday in Berkshire it was snowing.

More ‘inherited plants’ coming through. Two aconites, a few Crocus thomasiana and a patch of pulmonaria. In my pots the Iris reticulata and relatives like Sheila Ann Germany and Katherine Hodgkin are in flower, or close to. Daffodils seem to be earlier in places.

Of seed sown last autumn outside the first to germinate is Digitalis ferruginea. More seeds sown today, the first in the heated propagator including Geranium palmatum and G madarense.

Also tidied, cut dead leaves etc from the banana and various other more tenders in the conservatory.
