What a pleasant weekend, at long last. It was almost slightly warm at times, and the horrendously icy northeasterly winds had eased a bit. And my ‘February Gold’ daffodils had opened some flowers, too! They are rather optimistically named, for my chilly garden, even in the warmest of years, but usually they have managed to open soon after the beginning of March, rather than April. But there is a scattering of green appearing in the hedgerows, and the primroses are out, so spring must be on its way.
While we’re still dreaming of warmer conditions, and perhaps fancying something to brighten up our windowsills or conservatories, or just looking for a different day out, there’s an interesting plant sale coming up in a couple of weeks’ time. Gerry Blacoe, one of our two new committee members, has asked me to publicise the Cactus and Succulent Plant Sale at Holbeach Community Centre on Saturday 20th April, organised by the Spalding branch of the BCSS (British Cactus and Succulent Society).
He tells me they have allocated all 40 sales tables, so there should be plenty to look at, and buy! Here’s their poster, and a link to their website.
