Had a lovely surprise looking out of the front window this morning. My Witch hazel has burst into flower in time for Christmas. There was only one flower on her last year,

I thought these fungi were killing her.

Fungi on the cherry tree as well, she wasn't very happy this year.

The twisted hazel has little catkins on, she had her first one last year.

And once again my little witch has encouraged this primrose to flower before any of the others.

The Kaffir lilly is in flower too.

All in time for Christmas.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Woke up to this scene in the garden today, but althouh the snow carried on all day it never settled properly.

The feeders were busy all day. This one had been filled 2 hours earlier.

Altogether I filled two of the feeders three times each.
 But it was worth it to have this beauty come back again in the afternoon.
