Riding the Wind

So far this January has felt more like spring with the weather being twenty degrees above the normal temps most days. That is soon to change so I decided to get outside to see if any of the late winter plants are showing buds or blooms. 
I was delighted to find a couple of blooms on the Jelena Witchhazel. 
None of the hellebores had any buds but at this time nor were there any snowdrops showing signs of coming up. They are the smart ones. Not fooled by this warmer weather.
The wind is howling today. Trying to warn us of colder times to come. 
Have you found anything blooming in your garden lately?

Happy 2019

On a gloomy foggy cold day I looked at the lemon tree here in my living room and found there was a bloom!  A positive way to begin the new year.
I hope you are having a positive start to 2019 too!
