After yesterday’s washout, and a wet start this morning, the sun at last came out.
The perfect opportunity for my first foray into the garden for the year. The ground is too wet for serious work (those weeds and excess teasel seedlings towards the back of the border will have to wait) but I have potted on the Mahonia nitens ‘Cabaret’ that I received for Christmas, trimmed the hawthorn hedge at the end of the garden and poked about the borders, pulling up brambles and investigating lots of promising shoots that are pushing their way up already.
Here’s to a fine gardening year ahead for us all! Wishing you all the best for this shiny new year.
