Katherine Hodgkin Beats the Snowdrops

The gales at the end of January that continued into February finally abated late on Friday. Saturday wasn't too bad with some sunny spells but a little colder. It’s forecast that the weather will become cold and wintry again from the middle of the week. It seems winter’s not finished with us just yet.

Putting on a spectacular display in the front garden is Katherine Hodgkin. Out before any of the snowdrops it’s another sign that spring and some better gardening weather is on the way. That’s my theory anyway!

  1. That iris is a beauty! Snow, sleet and hail stones in Northern Ireland last night and today.

  2. My iris are nowhere near ready to flower yet neither are the snowdrops come to that - the iris is a lovely colour but my personal preference are the dark purple ones. We had a smattering of snow today but the rain soon got rid of it.
