The broken amaryllis stem has now produced a third flower. The final, fourth, one is much less developed though, and I’m not sure if it will open.
Lacking inspiration today, so another photo of part of the monkey puzzle tree.
The name given to these carriages.
As you will see, the snow has now gone from here. I managed to clear the blockages on the waste pipe and the pen today, though I’m not sure if they may come back.
After the blocked waste pipe on the wash basin in the bathroom, now the fountain pen is blocked, and so far I haven’t managed to unblock either it or the waste pipe! I thought originally that the problem with the waste pipe was simply that it was frozen (I’ve often had that in the past), but unfortunately it has not cleared since the weather turned much warmer. I shall have to see if I can clear the problems tomorrow.
The stem which broke off the other day is now in water, and one of the flowers has opened.
Another photo of my winter clematis, in better light and without snow or frost this time.
The second stem was producing this flower. Sadly in moving the plant to photograph it the stem broke off, so there won’t be any photo of it in full flower!
Only left the house briefly for this photo in the garden – another cold day. The wash basin outlet in the bathroom seems to have been frozen for several days now, so I’m having to use the kitchen sink for washing, brushing teeth etc.
The hellebores aren’t doing very well this year. They are later than usual, some seem to have died off, and the remaining ones are only a few centimetres high. which makes it even more difficult than usual to photograph them. Of course there have also taken a bit of a battering in the recent weather.
