What’s happening in our gardens  –

March 15 2019:  it looks like spring is finally on the way – sun and temperatures approaching 20 are expected for the coming week.   Check out the photos from a walk in the Dollarton area on St Patrick’s Day.

February 2019:  so much for the quick start – lots of freezing temperatures and snow to stop the growing plants in their tracks!   They seem to have survived, though.  These photos are from a shadier garden than January

January 2019: So far, there are signs that things are off to an early start this year, with Hellebores and Witch Hazel in bloom,  and Daffodils nearly ready! 

March – still like January, but shrubs starting to bloom as well
Heathers and Hellebores recovering from cold and snow – February
January: Hellebores, witch hazel and daffodils
