New Gardening Year
06 January 2011 14:55:27
I can hardly believe I haven't written anything since July. Where have those 6 months gone. I had a walk round the garden today and noticed some daffodil shoots coming up. Hopefully the predicted snow for tomorrow won't be as bad as last time. I actually lost plants in the porch at the front of the house. It was just so cold despite heat being on. The plants in the conservatory at the back have so far all survived. Extra heat on there.
My husband hired a mini digger in the summer and we cleared out 4 beds which had got totally weed invested and out of control. Now we need to hire a skip to get rid of all the rubbish. First task for this year and replant the beds which I am looking forward to doing.
I have been feeding the birds all winter and it is lovely to watch them. Unfortunately one of cats takes a too healthy interest in ornithology. We have pheasants which are bred at the top of the road and come down for extra supplies.
I am going to spend the rest of the afternoon marking up free seed lists ready for this years season. I ususally end up ordering more that I need.
Happy New Year to everyone and lets hope for a super gardening season in 2011. Our local horticultural society show is already being planned for the first weekend in April.
