The theme of this meeting was to be what can be seen in your garden ……. best laid plans.
We did have quite a few members telling us what has been doing well at the moment and delighting them at this bleak time. We also heard how the snow had damaged various trees and shrubs, sometimes quite badly.
|This Camellia has been out since early December. Does anyone know its name?|

Norma sent this lovely photo of her flower
arrangement suggested by a flower arranger to the Queen.
You need a pretty tray, I used a jam jar, a vinegar bottle, two wine glasses and two pieces from a dressing table set. Spring flowers are lovely. I used Tulips, Freesia, Forsythia twigs and Garrya elliptical.

Her blog and the rest of the website also looks interesting.
Looking forward to the gardening year ahead ....
