There's been no Hortus for the last couple of weeks because there's not been much going on out there and I've been quite content to put my feet up and enjoy the Winter break. But nothing stands still in the garden for long, and so I'm back.
We had some great sunshine mid week, and nothing sets off cherry blossom like a deep cobalt sky. This Winter Flowering Cherry comes into bloom every January and continues for weeks. There are plenty of buds still to come too.
