Six on Saturday and A Winter Swimmer

Just the one beautiful day this week so we got in a good walk and some garden tidying up, discovering some Crocuses hidden under decaying leaves. Spring is certainly springing in Cornwall, very, very wet and quite (relatively) warm.

1.  The Crocuses

2 and 3  The beautiful little anemones are beginning to bloom.

4.      More Snowdrops

5.       Iris Reticulata

6.  Paler Iris Reticulata – I prefer the darker ones.

I told my friend about the comments about her winter swimming and pointed her to them. This is her response
“Awwwh that’s so lovely Sally. I love the ‘Is she sane?’ I can only say, it’s questionable at times but cold water swimming helps. Today’s swimming adventure is at high tide in Little Beach at Portreath. It’ll probably be mizzling if not piddling down, I’ll have my diving head torch, oh so glam waterproof changing robe and hot water bottle and chocolate. What else could a girl wish for on a Saturday night in lock down?!”
Later this afternoon, N popped over so that I could add a photo. She is such a star!

The inspiration for Six on Saturday comes from The Propagator. Pop over to see his posts and to read sixes from lots of other gardeners to find out how gardens all over the world are faring.
