More of the depths of winter

Some hazy photos taken yesterday, on a sunny-cloudy-breezy afternoon here in Cambridge.

First bed:

Daphne bholua ‘Jacqueline Postill’ smells delicious, and she’s surrounded by clouds of…
…winter aconites – I love their skirt-like foliage.
Also nearby are these cream primroses. They’re taking a while to establish here.

Rose bed:

Little orange crocuses are blooming here now, lapping up the morning sunshine when they can.

Elsewhere:

It looks like our magnolia is going to flower this year (which will be for the first time!)
I think this is Helleborus × hybridus Double Ellen Red, showing signs of life as a very young plant.
 Iris reticulata ‘Katherine’s Gold’ has popped up in a couple of our pots.

Wishing you a peaceful weekend,

🌞 K
