It would be lovely to wake up to that view every morning. The mornings are getting lighter now, but isn't it cold?
Keep calm and carry on.

It is sooo cold, I don't know how long this cold spell will last, I hope not too long. I already see some wilters in the garden. At least it isn't as cold as last year. We went away for crimbo and came back and the temperature gauge read -11 :shock: I'm surprised the garden survived at all. :lol:

Have you seen icicles this year apples? We had loads the other day after some rain, it did look lovely. :)

Hi Will. No, we haven't seen any icicles this year. We've had freezing rain overnight and today, and the paths are like a skating rink. We have a choisya in a pot that's looking a bit droopy. I think the cordylines would be dead by now if we had any. :lol: We've given up on those. Have you given up on them too? I bet the daffs wish they could go back into the bulbs until it's bit warmer. :lol:
Keep calm and carry on.

Hi apples. I am not keen on cordylines, my mother-in-law bought me one and it died a few years later, probably from neglect. Then we bought one which turned in to a giant palm tree looking thing, so I naughtily stuck it under the vent to help kill it off in the winter. :oops:

Yes those poor daffs will be shivering in the cold, they thought it was all nice and spring like then BAM! Icicles for breakfast. :lol: Even our snow drops died in this freeze.

This is part of the reason I would like a garden which is trees and wild flowers, not much to worry about then, they kind of take care of themselves. I would just tend to flower baskets and perhaps a herb garden and some veggie patches…oh that would be nice. :)

Do you have a veggie patch apples?

Hi Will. We have icicles on the telephone wire today, probably from all the cold callers. :lol:
I can just picture you in the summer, floating round the garden in a long dress, with a big straw hat and a basket over your arm dead heading the flowers. Very genteel. :) I'd like a garden that was just grass and trees, as you say not much to look after.

No, we don't have a veggie plot. We had one but we were fighting a losing battle with the rabbits, and our carrots were about the same size as darning needles. :lol: We have fruit trees, they were here when we came.
Keep calm and carry on.

Oh yes, that is me, floaty and genteel. :)

Awww rabbits are naughty, I don't know how you would keep them out of the carrots. I would probably hand it over to them, being a soft touch. :oops: Fruit trees sound nice, you can make some chutneys and nice puds with apple trees. Do you make your own goodies from the fruit, or just eat it all raw. Or do the rabbits jump up and eat them too? :lol:
