Looking forward to Spring
A game of hide and seek in the garden was such fun. Although it was cold, wrapped in woollen jumpers and bobble hats it did not seem to matter. To see the Grandchildren laughing, cheeks rosy ............a family coming together, at this special time of year.
When I planned the garden 13 years ago, I wanted a garden that had flowers all year.
Not for me, although I love my plants, but for the bumble bees that nest in the garden.
I was fortunate just before Christmas Day to see a queen bumble bee feeding on the Mahonia blooms. I cannot describe the absolute joy this brings.
To help nature survive these cold winter months is a privilege.
I am now looking forward to Spring. As each day passes we are given a little more light, and to any gardener that is something to look forward to.
