A very 'wintery' welcome back to our monthly garden diary from the Victorian Walled Garden here in Kylemore Abbey. I thought I could start the first diary for 2020 with a spring theme but the current cold spell and stormy weather leads to a different one. The first heads of Crocuses, Daffodil's, Muscaris (Grape Hyacinths) and Bellis are peeping out and are well tested at the moment. The drop in temperature will result in a slower start of the spring flowers but should not damage them, hopefully! Saying this, winter garden images can be very attractive and have its own charm.  Morning frost put a white fairy-like coating over plants and lawns.   Pic1 It is cold...
