Wandering down the garden paths today

provided very few corners without snowdrops. The Daphne odorata and camellias are blooming and budding. little blue irises, have and yellow crocuses are out. The white alliums easily confused with snowdrops are beginning to grace the beds. Pulmonaria, primulas, and pansies offer a little alliteration.

Red Admiral on bergenia

As so often at this time of year, a tattered Red Admiral basking on a bergenia revels in surviving the winter.

This evening we dined at Lal Quilla. The food, service, and atmosphere were as excellent as always. My main meal was davedush; Jackie’s was murgh noorijenani. We shared special fried rice, an egg paratha, and onion bahji, and both drank Kingfisher.

  1. I see a number of signs of spring arriving in your garden Derrick. A new kitchen and spring planting – Jackie is going to be busy!! πŸ™‚ We are currently on standby for Cyclone Gita expected to carve a path through the country on Tuesday – Ah the joys of becoming a sub-tropical nation!!

  2. After all the news of yet another school shooting in America, a virtual stroll in your garden has calmed my mind. To think that a time is coming when all this natural beauty could be lost to us hurts my heart.

  3. I was so thrilled to see your multiple colors of flowers, Derrick and Head Gardener! Wow, we barely have anything but yellow and white buds, small bits of the “new” green sprouts here! Snow and sleet on Thursday after work keeps many plants from making efforts. . . The “p” flowers were a fun alliterative sentence, as you noted, Derrick. πŸ’
