Winter wind down

There’s been no discernable changes to Liz’s white oak or my plum tree since last month  so I’m not doing a separate post about them this month.  Thanks to Pat, The Squirrelbasket, for hosting Tree following this year, and if she continues we’ll be taking part again next year.

I looked round a rather forlorn plot yesterday morning, which was my first visit since last Saturday.  There had been rain overnight so it was soggy, and seeing as it was chilly as well I didn’t linger for long.  I left Foxy nestling in the ivy under the rose Pretty Lady and headed home for tea and biscuits.  He was given to me by one of the other plot holders soon after I took mine on.

With little to do, or can be done, at this time of year I’m now starting my winter wind down.

Take care, and have a good weekend!

    It’s time for planning next year’s plot now, as well as finding some good books to delve into.

    ‘Home for tea and biscuits’ is one of my favourite phrases. I ordered two packets of sweet peas yesterday on a bit of a whim. Prince of Orange and one which just appears to be called High Scent. In other news, the elephant garlic is up. CJ xx

      CJ good for you, it’s one of mine as well. They both sound good, I was given some recently and told that they’re pink/white flowers. I guess you’re pleased to see it appear. xx


  5. Enjoy your winter wind down Mike, you deserve it! x

    Foxy looks so cute nestled in the foliage keeping watch over the plots during the winter season.
    My thanks to you, for posting my oak tree this year and to Pat for hosting tree-following.

    Here’s to a wonderful winter wind down! Enjoy! xxx


  8. Even though I am still working full time from home over Christmas it does feel like a winding down, not only for nature…
    Have a lovely Christmas and yes I would love for you to join me again next year. My biggest fear is that everyone else will give up!
    I have already chosen my tree and look forward to seeing yours in the new year.
    Stay very safe 🙂

      Pat I hope that you get some time to relax.
      Thanks, and you too. I certainly will, and I’m sure Liz also will. I’ve no doubt others will also carry on.
      Good for you, I possibly have as well.
      You too. xx
