  • I LOVE SNOWDROPS!

  • I love Snowdrops! Such a cheerful little flower that tells us that spring is not too far away. We were lucky enough to inherit several big patches of them from the previous owner of our house, and they look lovely at the bottom of the garden under the old apple trees. I couldn’t resist digging up a little clump of them[...]
  • A FROSTY NOVEMBER MORNING

  • There was such an amazing heavy frost this morning and glorious sunshine with it! I was so grateful not to have to rush off to meetings first thing, and so I spent a very nice half an hour following the chickens around the garden with my camera, sporting the very attractive pjs/dressing gown/wellies combo that my neigh[...]

But as the month has gone on, there are hints that spring may be around the corner- bulbs popping up and star[...]
  • A NEW HOUSE AND A NEW GARDEN!

  • We moved into our new house in Swansea a few weeks ago, and already it feels like home.

The house needs some TLC, but for now I am most excited about what th[...]
