It’s the perfect time of year to get on with some maintenance jobs: cleaning tools, pots, greenhouses, fixing fences and leaking shed roofs etc…..and sowing just a few seeds to get things kicked off. I’ve never had any luck with sweet peas but that doesn’t mean I won’t keep trying.
A few simple swaps in the bathroom can easily reduce our consumption of plastic and considerably reduce the amount of waste we produce. More and more companies are offering these sorts of products so its easier now than ever. Happy swapping.
Hurrah! It’s that time of year for sitting down with the seed catalogues, scraps of paper and myriad packets of saved and gifted seeds to try to plan a garden which will feed me all year……..
It’s Twelfth Night……the traditional day for ‘wassailing’ in the orchards when we offer the wassail cup to our fruit trees to wish them good health and a bountiful harvest in the coming year.
I’m trying to contain my excitement at the beginning of a new growing year…..the garden is so peaceful just now, almost asleep, a quiet has descended and the weak winter sunshine barely makes it over the tree line……it’s a beautiful time of year when we can dream of all the possibilities our soil might give us.
Time to reflect……not just on this month but the whole year……and time to get excited for a whole new year to play with. Happy new year everyone.
This video is very quiet and without much action….it is simply the bees. Please enjoy and use for your meditation or prayer. But, please, if it isn’t your kind of thing don’t watch it and don’t give a thumbs down and leave a negative comment….in my world it’s all about the love and the positive. Have a beautiful and peaceful day.
Thank you all so much for your lovely words of support this year and for spoiling me this Christmas with greetings and gifts. I can’t wait to play with them all. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I wish you peace, joy, happiness and so much love. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. X
What could be finer on a bright winter’s morning than a wander through the garden harvesting vegetables for a Christmas feast…..?
During a super quick visit I managed to eke out a bit of compost to cover the last of my new perma beds…….and I had a go at chopping up leaf litter using a strimmer and a bucket…. I also remembered to grab a handful of the fennel roots, which I had dug out a few days before, to experiment with in the kitchen. Even if I only have a spare hour or two it’s worth a quick session in the garden at this time of year just for the light.
