My thanks

I hope that you all had a good Christmas, mine was quiet and relaxing.

My thanks to those who sent me a card/ecard, and to Nikki, over in southern California, who also  sent me this lovely cat face wooden coaster.




I’ve spent a couple of hours most mornings on the plot.  It’s surprising that the strawberry plants are only now starting to die back with the leaves changing from green to red then yellow and finally brown.



The growing year ended better than expected thanks to a good autumn, which made up for the cool wet spring and dry hot summer which made it rather challenging at times.  Next year will be my 12th full season and I’m looking forward to it as always.

My thanks to everyone who has stopped by here to read my posts and look at the pictures, and especially to those of you who have kindly commented.

Have a good week and happy New Year!

    I was thinking that about my strawberries as well – they’ve had a full flush of green leaves on them for ages, normally they’ve been cut back by now. I’m wishing you a Happy New Year as well, here’s to a good growing season in 2019. CJ xx

    What a cute coaster. Let’s hope 2019 isn’t as challenging for the gardener as 2018 was, though I’m sure it’ll throw up some things to test us all. Wishing you a very happy new year and all the very best for 2019.
