My Bristol Garden in 2015

Despite the coughing and spluttering you have taken some wonderful pictures. Hope you are snuggled up inside now keeping warm as the wind is bitingly cold out there.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Oh Tootles - it must make you sick reading about all our gardening activities while you were stuck in the workhouse.

Fab day - emptied number 2 compost bin onto borders - they look great with the dark stuff - blackbirds and robins zoomed in to feast on the wiggly worms from the compost.  Hacked down and back a form of cotoneaster that was getting out of hand.  It now looks like a bad hair day but I guess it will soon fill out again.  Going to be wet and cold tomorrow so glad I managed to work in the garden today.

Nut - looks like you are having a fight with dead stuff.  What a lot of snowdrops too. 

Suggestions for a shady corner

And to give a bit of height by the fence how about a pittosporum tenuifolium which is evergreen.  I have one that faces north east and doing nicely.

Is this a 'smoke bush'?

It's one of my favourites because of the lovely colour to contrast with all the other greens in the garden.  It regenerates quickly each year Charlotte and I often snip bits off mine during the year to keep it in shape.

Good news Hostafan about the spawn - why are you hobbling?

No sign of anything yet (Glos/Hereford border) - I know frogs were hibernating in the bottom of the pond (boys?) so no girls around yet.

You are so entertaining Marion.

Spotted today on our walk in the Cotswolds.

Although very wintery with a hail storm the snowdrops in the wood were a welcome sight.
