    Greetings from Serbia, and our beautiful Tara mountain!
    And my `creation` for the Christmas! You can see orchids in the back, they`ll be flowering soon! :-)

    Spring is on the way...here in my garden in Southern England , and here are a couple of signs to show I'm not just a cock-eyed optimist - the orange flowers are Witch-hazel (Hamamelis - one of the hybrids, I forget which). Maybe the best flowering I have had yet. The pink are a cyclamen species. I also have just one snowdrop out, and a lot more showing buds, several different Hellebore hybrids ready to open flowers, and a lot of daffodils where the buds are just starting to turn over from the spear position to the horizontal...

    Those cyclamen are gorgeous Geoff. Afraid we are more than 2 months from where your climate currently is.

    Hi Don!, First off I suggest you get your own Ground Hog and train him as to what is the right thing for him to do...........For those overseas, the Ground Hog in a town in Pennsylvania, U.S.A. is a predictor (by legend or myth) of how long winter will last. Its a bit more involved than this, but suffice it to say, if the Ground Hog sees its shadow when he comes out of his hole its at least six more weeks of winter! AL
