Around this time we often look back at the previous year in the gardens; but on a cold, grey, wet January day, waiting for Storm Cristoph to come and saturate the ground again, I thought I’d just post a few reminders from early autumn last year, to remind us that better times are (hopefully) just around the corner.
Doesn’t this look green and lush! We’d just pruned the lavender edging back, and the first dahlias were coming out.
Here’s the bed that Mentmore Road Under-Fives usually help us look after – we weren’t able to garden together at all this year, let’s hope they can come and grow some more flowers, peas and carrots this year:
I’ll put up more photos of the flowers themselves later on, to brighten the end of January. And hopefully, there’ll be a few of the first winter aconites – they’ve been coming out in my (more sheltered) garden over the back. but no sign of them here yet.
