Pictures, plants and people.

Last night  was  the first  meeting this year of the HPS of Nottingham .

What a great way to forget the very difficult day in Paris.

It was a delight to be among plant lovers again.

The talk was entitled Winter into Spring.

The speaker from HOO House Nursery was well prepared with beautiful slides of perennials that flower  from Winter into Spring.

These included Hellebores, Eranthis, Galanthus Cyclamen,Pulsatilla , Erythronium and Hepaticas

Tips were given on how to breed hellebores..

Plant combinations and making use of broken pots was mentioned.

Making contact with fellow plant enthusiasts is always a delight.

As is hearing recommendations for gardens to visit.

These long nights after Christmas can be used to a good purpose by mixing with other gardeners.

The result is  an increased motivation to make the most of the year ahead.
