This week, the UK is enjoying a mini heatwave. The sudden high temperatures and humidity are a little challenging to work and sleep in, but mostly welcome after the drab and cool start to our summer so far.
May has skipped past with its usual quickstep.
Spring brings increased vigour and determination, as winter’s sleepy plans are discarded, refined or set in motion.
I’m quite intrigued at the comparison between my Salvia ‘Kate Glen‘ plants; two of which have overwintered in the garden, while the other I potted up and kept in our unheated greenhouse.
Spring is in full throttle, and I’m enjoying our under-storey planting.
March is a month of changes.
January is drawing to a close already, and I am still rather conspicuous by my absence here in the blogosphere.
A very happy new year to you all!
There I was, thinking that my return to work would allow me a little snatched time at the start or end of my working days to catch up with the mounting heaps of unread posts in my blog feed – and to write my own…
The garden is certainly taking something of a backseat this year… but there have been some changes.
