What's the weather like in your area?

Same here BJay, Wish now I had done something, however small. Not raining yet, but it won't be long. I can't believe it is only 2 o'clock it is so dark.

Well, everyone who visits says it's a lovely garden.  Real hit and miss, I'm afraid.  I see a plant, buy it and hope for the best.  Not always been successful but, as the saying goes, you learn by your mistakes.  I am a fair weather gardener, so only look from the windows at this time of the year, plotting what to do next.  Have a variety of plants and have only in the past 2 years, since joining a gardening forum, kept a note of what I buy.  The other many years' plants, I haven't got a clue.  I love it though!  Have a pond with about 10 Koi in it and a few goldfish, courtesy of grandchildren and loads of frogs as and when.  Oh, and it's not showing off, we really like to see other people's accomplishments.  So, give it a go.

Was absolutely beautiful here in the South East. the sun beaming all day long.  My only complaint is that it showed up all the dust and dirt.  I did not weaken!!  It's still there.

Verdun, I have read so much about what you grow in your garden which sounds wonderful and would love to see some photos.  It is hard at times to visualise what someone is describing.  Hope you can oblige. Look forward to seeing them.

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.

I second that!  Don't even have to worry anymore about the grandchildren or their dog falling in my pond.  All managed it, as have I, so once bitten twice shy.

Why did you all start gardening?

Didn't do any gardening until I had a house of my own, athough I would pot on chrysanths for my Dad.  Very theraputic sitting in greenhouse, daydreaming! Moved into my house in November 47 years ago where the 90ft garden was two-thirds rose beds and one third waist high weeds!  The following summer I took on the challenge of clearing said weeds, which took me 2 weeks.  Had a lovely tan though.  Since then it has changed so many times, rose beds became grass for the kids to play and, once they were able to play in local park (can you see that happening today) I set about making it how I wanted.  However, every Winter, I stand at my French windows deciding what I would like to move, change, grow, etc.  It's an ongoing wonderful 'hobby'.  I love my time spent out there where all my worries and concerns disappear.  I am pleased to say that my elder son has the 'bug' but, unfortunately, not much time.

Hi.  If this doesn't work, blame Santa Cruise or Santa Fey whatever Geoffrey is today.  Sorry to read about those of you who are unwell.
