Content because I was actually up to date with things in the garden. This is very rare as the Good Lady will tell you. The ‘to do’ list stuck to the fridge always seems to grow in disproportion to the time available in which to do said tasks.
So, here we are, after two, snow-free, weeks of leave over Christmas, in the middle of January when nothing has been growing for months, finally up to date. Almost. I’ll get going on those early weeds next weekend, I thought to myself. Steel a march on the spring.
And then the snow came.
Not too much in the early part of the week, 3-4 inches last night.
The funny thing is: when I was remarking to myself how (almost) tidy the garden was last weekend, I was also thinking that there wasn’t much of interest. It was tidy, but just, well, a little dull. A bit of oomph is required, something to brighten us all up during the long winter weeks.
Nature provided the solution, as she very often does – the icing on the cake. Some pictures for you, including one from up a ladder!
