  2. Oh Angie, I feel for you, we have it really cold down south, but at least we don't have any snow to battle with. This cold spell is said to last us to the end of the month, no double figure temperatures yet, and if the long term forecast is anything to put trust in, April will be colder and wetter than normal. Ugh!

    1. Helen thankfully its all gone now. April is always wet and cold up here so no change there.
      You southerners have had it bad this year haven't you?

    2. Yep, my garden is many weeks late and my heating bill is terrible.

  3. Those red lips really stand out against the snow! We don't get much snow where I am, though our largest snowfall ever occurred in March thirteen years ago, this week! I don't think there is a chance of that happening this year, so I am still admiring the virtual snow of other bloggers.

    1. Debs. I may have a grumble about the snow but I live it. Winter wouldn't be winter without it. I admire tropical places in the same way!

  4. The red lips indeed go with watch my wednesday :-) since you have to use lips to talk(form words). The snow has accumulated nicely on those leaves - some are covered; some are not.

  5. You must be on an acid soil to grow Leucothe so well

    1. To be honest I've never tested my soil but inherited a garden full of Rhodes hence I concluded it was acidic. On saying that I have blue and pink hydrangeas!
      I was always under the impression that soil here in Scotland tends to be on the acidic side.
      The Leucothoe seem to be enjoying it but the Skimmia planted very nearby isn't. I really should get a test!
