Garden News Year's Day 1st Jan 2010

It was a fantastic sunny and cold start to the year. We hadn't been to the usual News Year's Eve event this year - so the new year started brightly too!

I went looking for flowers which had come out despite the snow and cold

Pond still frozen solid
My favourite path down through our woods
Witch hazel
The first virburnum in flower
Pansy in the sun.
So how long until the first daffodil? Last year it was 17th Jan but it has been much colder this year. so I don't expect them until February.
