The above photos were taken on a walk from Lostwithiel to the top of Golant.  The photos of the catkins was taken on the way through the fields to Milltown Woods and the other three were taken at the entrance to the churchyard of St Sampson Church in Golant.

A friend of mine gave me a "mystery pot of bulbs" that she had put together herself.  I had to wait until this week to find out what they were.  The pot is in a relatively sheltered spot on my back step.  I was delighted to see these small irises bloom early in the week.  They are blue with very dark blue tips.  Such a cheerful sight!

Sandra Marten provide the four photos above and writes:
  • Hellebores are always early in my garden
  • The gorgeous Camellia has tiny gem like flowers, the brightest of deep raspberry pink that go on for months
  • Even my gunnera in a pot won't wait to start growing again!

Pink Camelia – variety is possibly Donation, but I cannot be sure.

Winter flowering shrubby Honeysuckle (Lonicera Fragrantissima) – much enlarged as flowers are only about 1/2inch long but very sweetly scented!
