Re: Stroll in the evening


Did the same as Jim. One grape hyacinth is blooming and those crazy blue
scabiosa are still blooming! Winter honeysuckle is veritable symphony of
scent and the rosemary shrubs are going to town too. Have daffodil buds,
so they'll be blooming real soon. Woo hoo. That means Spring is right
around the corner....
