The Very First Ones

As I knew exactly where their place was, I have just removed the snow a little bit and here they are..the very first one of this year.

In a Vase on Monday: Mid - January Selection

As I knew my agenda would be very busy on the first day of the week, I arranged my vase on Sunday. It was a beautiful sunny winter day, perfect to go outside and make a bouquet enjoying the fresh air and the charm of a garden covered with snow. For my special winter-coated vase, I cut some catkins from our big Hazel tree, a few stems of yellow and red Dogwood,  Photinia compacta and some Nandina berries.

Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day - January 2017

The garden is covered with a lot of snow, last week we had around -20 Celsius degrees, so for this month Bloom Day there are only a few blooms which, apart from the catkins, you can actually count on your fingers.

1. The catkins of the hazel tree:

2. The decorative cabbage planted in a basket on the terrace:

3. The Helleborus Christmas Rose that hardly survived the frost:

4. Calluna:

5. A yellow viola (the other ones did not survive):

6. A white Cyclamen, inside:

Please visit Carol at May Dreams Garden to see what's blooming in January in other gardens from around the world.

Zi cu corn!

Azi e zi cu CORN!

Cornul galben (Cornus stolonifera flaviramea) crește repede și e foarte decorativ tot timpul anului, chiar si iarna. Uite ce galben-verzui frumos etalează în aceste zile! Noi îi folosim rămurelele și la aranjamentele de flori.

 Cornus alba ‘Sibirica‘ e o mică vedetă a grădinii de iarnă, cu lăstari roșii ce ies în evidență în contrast cu zăpada. E și premiat de RHS, ”Golden Merit”
