JANUARY & FEBRUARY 2012

 
This fragrant narcissus pops up every year in the garden.  The bulb was originally given to us for Christmas a few years ago by Chris and Brenda.
 
 
We enjoy walking whenever we can especially as we have many lanes around us without having to walk along roads.
 
 
I always come home with a handful of flowers and leave to draw.
 
 
February is a fantastic time to see Camellias here thanks to the mild climate.
 
We have a mimosa tree which grows like a weed and is covered with lovely scented flowers.  Unfortunately it grows so tall that it gets damaged in the strong winds we often get here.
 
Another gift from the family, Justine gave me one of her Hellebores which always delights me when it appears in February.
