Small Garden Story
Over some 15 + years, I have been photographing the evolution of my small (85 x 15 foot) garden and it seems a waste not to put these records into some sort of context. Beginning here in April 2010 this Blog is intended to both act as a diary and to share past and present successes (and some failures), pleasures and disappointments with fellow garden-lovers. In due course, I intend to fill in some of the background and early days but that will have to wait until the winter months!

|Garden in snow 18th December|
I was treated to a very extraordinary experience today. We have had a good 5 inches or so of snow but today is the day for me to bring in my Christmas tree and I thought I'd better get on with it before it disappeared all together. So I had to get first a broom, then a paint brush to brush off as much snow as possible before bringing it into the house - all the while battling off more settling! Anyway, its in now and has just about stopped dripping dry in the hall. I just hope the shock won't be too much for it!
I am trying to take care of the birds. Seeds and nuts in birdfeeders are easy but ground food is more tricky as it gets buried in the snow so fast. I have chopped up some dried dates which the blackbird seems to be enjoying.
