Good morning and welcome to this weeks SOS.
I wasn’t going to write a blog this weekend for a few reasons. First of all it was the works Christmas party on Thursday night and I am still recovering, secondly there is not a lot going on in the garden and lastly it is Baltically cold outside. As we used to say in the old days it is enought to freeze the balls off of a Brass Monkey.
I have braved the weather and hopefully I have taken enough photo’s for this weeks SOS in a one minute window.
Her is my six.
1. Aeonium experiment fail
2. Cyclamon and Sedum Lemon Ball
The only thing flowering in my garden is this cyclamen at the moment. In between it we have Sedum Lemon Ball. A type of Rupestre this will give excellent ground cover and some much needed colur in the winter. This was grown from a couple of little cuttings. It will look like Sedum Rupestre Angelica but it is a little bit lighter in colour.
3 Echeveria Shark Skin
A new hybrid released in 2017 from Surreal Succulents. This plant is pretty hardy but I have bought it inside today just to be on the safe side.
4 Aeonium Sunburst
A variegated Aeonium this one is tender and has been bought in for the winter and is currently sitting on my kitchen window sill.
5. Border preparing for winter
As always at this time of the year the perennial border retreats and starts it annual hybernation. Give it another 5 months and it will look like a totally different garden.
6 Checking the succulent cold frame
All seems to be in order at the moment. I might have to put a couple of layers of fleece on top if the cold weather continues.
Well that is my SOS and TBH it was a bit of a struggle. The next few SOS are going to be some best of the year blogs.

I hope everybody is keeping warm until next time.
