One of my friends from the Alpine Garden Society has just grought me an article for our group newsletter on Hellebores.  I took this picture of her and her husband;s garden which is a picture that illustrates a winter wonder indeed.

no whinge gardening!!!!!

i don't whinge because I can only remember the good things.  a friend asked me this morning how my garden was last summer.  i replied it was super - I had such a glut of strawberries I am still eating them.  only after she had gone did I remember the complete absence of Bramley apples which I normally have tons of.

The old carpet is down and covered with the pond liner and the edges anchored.  When we had that frightful rain it began to fill up nicely but one night the wind was fierce and my anchoring not good enough so the water drained out the corner where the liner lifted.  But i will tackle it again when the cold lifts as all is intact and still there.  I hope your garden and the wildlife in it will help you heal after your trauma, Sarah.  So lovely to hear from you.  i am very well but feeling the cold and so my photos at the moment are coming from the kichen window!

How cute is that.  My male brambling is eyeing up my bird ornament with solar powered light on my picnic table.  I would love to get a photo of the female if she comes to feed and sees this.  He has been looking at it for over ten minutes now.

You need a hide like my kitchen, flowering rose but my bramblings are so tame If I kept my camera round my neck i am sure they would let me take a close-up.
