The Garden in January
A winter view across my back garden
I had another JOY filled afternoon last week, spent weeding and pottering in my garden. Thankfully, the mild autumn and winter weather has ensured I am well ahead of my usual gardening schedule.
I have gravel paths between my flower beds, with a strong barrier underneath, yet some determined weeds still manage to seed through the stones, and the gentle winter has allowed many of them to keep on growing…
I focused on weeding, as I surveyed the early spring growth.
A pot of daffodils by my back door is sprinting
Miniature daffodils are already in flower
Bellis Perennis is still quite perky
Grasses and Christmas Roses provide a contrast to colourful Primulas
Wallflowers are unfolding, in assorted hues
Pink Pulmonaria will soon be joined by dear friends – yellow Daffodils and blue Muscari
In a couple of hours the weeds were gone, and I had completed a good, general tidy up. I spent quite some time admiring my progress…
A red breasted friend followed me around as I unearthed some tasty morsels, before serenading me with a song or two…
I felt quite uplifted, as I headed back indoors to imbibe a welcome hot chocolate.
