Out in the Garden To-day

To-day was dull, but comparatively mild

It was good to get out in the garden for a couple of hours

And clear some of the soggy mess of stems and old foliage.

Actually it was great to be in the garden again

  1. I managed a half an or so this afternoon but then it started to rain. I had fun though until then picking up the soggy leaves which were smothering the snowdrops.

  2. So glad you could get out, Karen. We have been out trying to tidy up a bit too, without doing too much since less maintenance is the goal, ala Piet and company. But even they have the once a year gigantic work a thon clean up. We are nearing that time, then comes spring! Hooray!

    The best news of all is that it is getting lighter in the evenings. Hooray.

  5. Frankly my garden looks damp and depressing though there are the odd bulbs appearing. I need a few flowers before I venture out with any enthusiasm. Sadly I am becoming a wimpy gardener as I get older.

  6. Right. Change of career, Karen. Quick march go and learn how to cast in bronze. Wouldn’t this look wonderful as a sculpture? Very delicate. Wonderful colour. Durable.

  9. Hi everyone – BT is still putting my wordpress comments in some spam box in the sky – why after nearly a year of them being “not spam” is beyond me – so I do apologize that I have not responded individually to all your great comments, I only found them to-day when I looked at this blog! đŸ˜¦

    Thank you for taking time to comment – much appreciated
