It is New year;s day and the rain has let up at lsst and i can take my camera out in my garden to see the beautiful bare bones of the trees and anything else that thrills me in the winter.  so be prepared for some photographs as soon as they are edited - and some enthusing from this gardener who has been suffering from withdrawal symptoms in our dire wet autumn.  What a treat it is to see the winter sun.

Happy New Year to you too, James and my resolution is the same as it has been for as many years as I can remember for just that - to make it is happy as I can and that goes for the garden too. I mean to enjoy it rain or shine but a bit more shine would be good as you say. I know "Into every life a little rain must fall" but this has been much more than a little!

Garden Leeks

I started with Musselburgh many years ago and have left a leek to go to seed each year which gave me lots of plants to transplant into  rows.  My leeks have just grown better and better eacg year and cost me nothing.  They are doing very well this winter enjoying the mild wet weather.

 

new years resolution

My New Year's Resolution is the same as the last twenty have been - just to enjoy it all.  No need to worry about space for the children to play or prickly plants or even whether they are poisonous.  I can experiment to my heart's content.
