Winter Ramblings

Posted on

For the first time in days the sun is shining and I’m thinking of all the bulbs which should have been planted weeks ago but are still sitting in the shed, sprouting green shoots. Confused rose bushes are wondering why they haven’t been pruned and a couple of daffodils have made an embarrassed appearance at the top of the garden. This winter so far has been one of mud-management with any venture outside requiring wellies and the kitchen floor is an ever changing mosaic of muddy paw prints.

The Chimonanthus is doing much to raise our spirits, sharing its glorious scent with everyone who passes, it’s heady aroma and warm yellow flowers are such a rich and welcome surprise at this time of year when colour and scent are scarce.
