The garden may be pregnant with possibility but, even though the days are lengthening and it's not too cold - about 9C at the moment - it is still winter. I don't have the space to have a lot of winter flowering plants so I don't concentrate on them. But there are still a few in the garden and even the sparsest blooming is worthy of note.
About one winter in three Pelargoniums, the bright summer geraniums, survive the winter unprotected outside. I used some red, star flowered ones in a window box last year and they are still producing the odd flower, undaunted by a few minor frosts. They'll look better in the summer.
