My parent’s garden on the other hand has been lovingly cared for and tended and is neat and orderly. While I have nothing flowering in the garden at the moment, they seem to have plenty. In fact, it doesn’t seem to matter how cold it is or how much snow we get, there are always a few little gems to admire.
|Winter aconites - as the name suggests, flowers in winter and doesn't |
mind snow or frost.
|Christmas box - very sweetly scented|
|Cyclamen - this one must be about 30 years old and has only had one or two|
flowers on it in the past. Seems to be having a good year!
|A second type of Daphne|
|Periwinkle - The Lymphoma Association uses the colour purple for their |
branding as Periwinkle is used to produce a certain type of chemotherapy
drug used in the treatment of Lymphoma
|There was even a clump of Velvet Shank in the garden|
