The garden is confused

And as a result, I too, am confused.

“Why oh why dear garden are your plants choosing to bud and flower when we have had a sprinkling of snow already?”

The camellia is stood proudly in its blue ceramic pot.  It is full of buds and is displaying a couple of vibrant pink flowers.  The stubby olive tree is bearing its fruits – even if they do look more like raisins than juicy olives. Let’s just hope it doesn’t end in tears. 
“Go hibernate little plants, shut yourselves down to protect from the Winter frosts”.  It’s what I plan to do for as long as I can get away with it – bundle up in fleecy blankets upon the sofa sipping mulled wine.  Mmmm…

  1. We were Carol singing round the Village last night - madness you might say but good fun. And great mulled wine, too. But I digress - there were geraniums still in flower! Not very Christmassy at all.
