Sun Going Down on 2009
Today has just been fantastic, sun shining although mighty cold. Spent the morning in the kitchen but after lunch escaped out into the winter air. The ground is quite frozen but I spent a while digging over one of my raised beds in the kitchen garden, went thinking maybe I would be able to extract carrots but to no avail frozen solid. Lifted 2 leeks for soup and picked some purple sprouting brocolli as well but it's sort of at an end. Planted up the remainder of the bag of daffodils in pots of compost which luckily was covered and therefore not frozen. Also planted up more Anenome The Bride and some alliums that I discovered in the cupboard with my gardening tool bag will keep my fingers crossed that they will grow but if not at least I tried - Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained. Tidied up the Lavender in the trough on top of the wall no sign of any bulbs peeping up hoping that they haven't disappeared. Cut back the withered Clematis stems on the arch as they have taken quite a battering, lots of crocus bulbs peeping up hopefully tomorrow will be another good day and I'll be able to get out again and do a bit more.
Kate arrived with late Christmas presents for the kids as she was eventually able to get her car out. She forgot to bring my present which she had put away of 4 David Austin bare root rosesin pinky shades. I actually was going to get the book out to order some but will wait to see which ones are waiting for me.
