Happy Boxing Day Everyone,
Every Christmas Day, weather permitting, I take a stroll round my garden, camera at the ready, to record what, if anything, is in bloom. This year it was full of surprises. So many plants that should have taken a winter break are still flowering.
The unseasonably warm temperatures are to blame for kidding the plants into still putting on a show - although not with the same exuberance they would show in Spring and Summer, their normal flowering time. And although it's lovely to have a bit of colour out of season it feels very strange. So strange, I'm hoping for a chilly spell. A fairly long frost would produce a spell of dormancy ... it would nice too if only to kill of the slugs and snails before Spring arrives ... or even snow. A garden shrouded in a blanket of snow is a beautiful sight.
Hope you are all enjoying the holidays.
Take care and stay safe,
