How little but how rewarding

I came in after an afternoon's gardening and was surprised at how little I had done but it was a lovely day, bright and not cold and snowdrops were up im bunches. All I did was collect a lot of leaves blown around the yard and some twigs that had been blown down and cleaned out a shore. Then I wed around the quern which is a small square about a foot wide and the circle of box around a variegated dogwood in the lower lawn. That was all but it filled my time. Just as dusk arrived Anna and her friend arrived back from tea and each had four lovely yellow primula for me. I got them in on the rockery just before dark. I also took some photographs and with a deal of bother got them onto my laptop so I hope i can transfer them to the journal.

And that was you doing LITTLE?  I don't think so, Peter. Love your garden, it has such a natural look.

Yes, that's plenty for an afternoon; lovely photos Peter, your snowdrops are such a pleasing sight.

Those "clumps" are coming along nicely! I'm determined to remember to divide mine this year!

I think that was a good days work, Peter. The snowdrops are looking great and will only get better in the next few weeks. You have one of the best snowdrop gardens I know and it is a credit to you that you have divided them over the years. Enjoy.
