Finding some little snowdrops already peeking through the soil this morning made me think about all the things I'm looking forward to this winter.
I love the hoar frost on the fennel seedheads outside the kitchen window - I planted the fennel there so that on a cold winter's day I'd look out from the kitchen window and see my garden through the frosted fennel - so I don't cut the fennel back until late winter/early spring.
I love watching the birds on the feeders that hang from our big ash trees - we get so many different ones and I can sit and watch them for hours.
Winter is such a good time to get to know your garden - ours is a very new garden and there's lots still to do - looking at the garden when it's in monochrome is a real help in planning for shape and structure.
What do you look forward to seeing and doing in your garden in the winter?
