I had a quiet…

and relaxing time over Christmas, for which I was thankful.

The weather over the past week has been a mix of cold, sunny days or damp, dull ones so I’ve only looked round the plot every few days.

It’s mostly a bare, brown canvas but it’s good to see crocuses and more daffodils appearing.


I don’t often see cats on the site but came across this one on Thursday which had found a sheltered, sunny spot. As you can see it has a moustache and looks like it’s smiling.

Thanks to everyone who has visited here over the past year, and especially to those who have kindly commented.

Have a good week and a happy new year!

  2. Last year was a great year for you, and I know you’ll have an even better one this year.

  3. It is nice to read a short simple blog sometimes – just making a simple point and now I’m going to pop outside and see if any of my daffs are coming up yet. Happy 2018 to you and here’s to a new lovely gardening year. Julie

    It lifts my heart at this time of year to see the spring bulbs start to appear, I’ve had enough of winter already. Wishing you all the very best for 2018.

    Daffodils appearing! Here in the Upper South of the US it’s been frigid for the past week and more to come, so keep that green coming! The kitty looks contented in its sunny spot.
    Happy 2018, Mike!

    Your feline visitor is a dead ringer for Salvador Dali!

    The Spring shoots seem to be early even for your soft climate Mr F. Or, am I mistaken in that belief?

    Weather is almost unpredictable north of the border. The Met reports do give useful clues though.
    Very happy and good gardening 2018 to you. Xx

  10. Happy New Year! The smiling cat is very smug and looks like he knows 2018 will be a good year! Lots of love xx

  11. Happy New Year Wishes

    All the best Jan
