Pretty in yellow

It’s Monday, and winter has struck again.  At least there’s no snow here, but the temperature is in single figures and the wind has knives in it.

Something pretty, then.  From one of our gardeners, here’s a pretty little double daffodil.

I’m not sure which variety these are – they look a bit like Golden Ducat – but whatever their name, they’re as cheerful as seeing the sun.

Thanks for sharing!

So, it’s the day the clocks go forward one hour for British Summer Time.  The weather forecast is for temperatures near zero, wintry showers and a nithering wind.  On a day like that, it’s a good job we’re locked up, um self-isolating.

Today’s image is from one of our gardeners who has been taking a short course in garden design at Harlow Carr.  I’m no good at design things, so it will be interesting to see what she has come back with when all this nightmare ends.  Looking forward to it!

This is part of her garden.

Thanks for sharing!  It looks just ready for a Devon Cream Tea on a warm sunny day.  It will be interesting to see how it all progresses.

The Daffodil Path post – I’ve edited to add in the identification of the mystery plants, having had all the responses from my groups that I think I’m going to get.  :~))

Don’t forget to change those clocks…
