I was thrilled to find these still in flower in my garden a couple of weeks back, usually I’d have to wait till spring to see them but our winter here in Dunedin has been relatively mild so far, but as the old saying goes “as the days grow longer, the cold grows stronger” and we often find that this is the case.
Sorry, I don’t do long posts like Paul in his blog posts or rambles as he puts it, there’s only so much you can write about flowers after all, but I was surprised when I did the mouse-over of this one how dark the original photo was compared to the finished one.
