Of course I had to inspect my alpines which have kept me so busy removing the wet leaves from them - well i do love them as well as my trees!  This is Sedum spathufolium nestling beside a white form of armeria.

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!
