Four years ago I created a winter garden here and since then I have gradually enlarged it and now I think it is looking really good. And it needs to look good to cheer the spirits on a day like this after weeks of unremitting gloom, storms and rain. Of course the photos would look better with sun sparkling on the garden, but it’s no good waiting for that to happen. At least it’s stopped raining for a bit. So I wrapped up warm and took a few shots to show you the winter garden whilst it is still winter. Of course spring bulbs make it look even better.
We are lucky in the UK to have a climate where we can grow so many plants which look wonderful in February. But this year, I do long for a sliding roof over the whole garden so that I can get out there and enjoy it even when storms with unpronounceable names are raging.
I haven’t labelled anything in this post so if you want to know what anything is please ask.
