Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - January 2012

Wow that's a long title.
I've got writer's cramp already.

Bacopa Double White, a tender perennial, what part of 'tender' doesn't it understand ?

Achillea Lilac Beauty, still flowering despite the frosts.

Primula Fruelo, planted in the autumn, and just starting to flower.

Galanthus Sam Arnott, oh alright then, it's a snowdrop. Lots of plants in bud, but this is the only one that has dared to open up, so far.

Polyanthus Gold Lace, now flowering in its second season.

Helleborus sternii, the only hellebores in the garden that have lifted their heads up today after the frost.

Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day is a meme hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens in which garden bloggers from all over the world take photographs of plants that are flowering in their gardens on the 15th of each month. The event has been running for five years, so I'm a little late to the party. Story of my life really.


  1. Jak to miło żyć w kraju, gdzie w styczniu w ogrodzie kwitną piękne kwiaty. Pozdrawiam.
    How nice to live in a country where, in January in the garden of beautiful flowers bloom. Yours.

  2. What pretty blooms you have! A lot of these I've never seen before, but I do know the snowdrop, and that one to me means spring! I hope it's right! Happy GBBD!

  3. Thats not a bad head count for January

  4. Nice photos, I especially like the Polyanthus 'Gold Lace', think I need to get one of those for my 'woodland garden' (just a corner of my garden), spectacular colours :-)
    I also have more flowers in my garden than usual, although I have flowers every month of the year, every year here in London. But this year is a bit special. Happy GBBD :-)

  5. cordially greet lovely blog:))

  6. All lovely blooms. I love your Primulas :)
    Happy GBBD!

  7. Your primulas are out early and so fresh and bright. My primula vulgaris is flowering but many of the petals have been eaten and it's been splashed with mud.
