A little walk around my garden, last evening, yielded a small posy. Some of the flowers are supposed to be out now, the others don't seem to realise that they should have given up long ago. The posy consists of:
Two small buds of Rosa 'Joie de Vivre'
A sprig of Orlya
Four white Viola, ( these should all be over by now)
Two stems of Viburnum fragrans,
Two stems of Viburnum tinus,
One stem of Viburnum plicatum
Three stems Lonicera fragrantissima,
but no winter Helleborus, or Chimonanthus praecox ( wintersweet) as yet. They are small joys to be looked forward to.
