WHAT IS HAPPENING IN MY GARDEN.

Nothing much I’m afraid. We are in the middle of a cold spell. We have had frosty nights and cold days for a few weeks now and for the next few weeks too I’m afraid. It is sunny during the day but cold! So nothing is really growing in the garden, the growing we had before the frost has come to a standstill. But I took a few pictures for you to see.

I DON’T CLEAN UP MY GARDEN IN AUTUMN AS THE LEAVES AND OLD STEMS GIVE A BIT OF PROTECTION AGAINST THE COLD AND THE BIRDS LOVE TO TURN THE LEAFS HOPING FOR A BUG TO EAT, THIS IS SEDUM WAITING FOR WARMER WEATHER

NOT LONG NOW

ent for a little stroll in my garden today and there is life in some plants again so I am pleased but it is early days yet. We’ll get some Spring-like days this week but our weather is really unpredictable, so we take it one day at the time.

Our new neighbours asked to remove our 35 year old conifer hedge between our garden and theirs. With pain in our hearts we said yes you may do this as the hedge was nice and green on our side but totally brown on their side. But the possitive about this is that I get a bit more garden where I can plant new things…..

Here are a few pics I took this afternoon.
