February news

The Schlumbergera truncata (commonly known as the Christmas cactus) has adorned  the porch with it’s pink trumpet-like flowers since November.  Like the yellow Winter Jasmin covering the back garden shed with it’s floral bounty from November to February each year, they are an unfailing annual delight and brighten the darker days.

Tulip bulbs are already showing spears of pointed leaves through the cold earth which gives us hope for the longer days and better weather to come. As we move into the month of February we look forward to Lent and an early Easter at the end of March.
