It is a chilly 8 degrees outside and winter has finally arrived in London. No sign of snow yet and we have yet to see any frost on the ground so the start of this December has certainly been very different to last year. I couldn’t be happier though, walking with crutches on snow is very difficult unless you have special ice attachments on them, and even then it is a tricky and dangerous thing just going outside the front door. I would be very pleased if this winter became one of those where we didn’t see any snow at all :-)
I have done some work to my blog, added some features which you can find on the left side panel and also added some pages. On the pages you can find photos of my garden and a drawing with all my plants. There is also a plant list with all the plants currently in my garden. I have always tried to keep a record of what I put in and take out of my garden to remind myself, as with so many plants it would be impossible to remember where I put what, and I could easily end up digging out plants I want to keep by accident. My blog is new of this year and I have done it parallel with the gardening section on my web-site, which I started in 2004. You can see the whole record of my gardening experience from my little garden here in London ON MY WEB-SITE.
Since my last post here I have joined a gardening community called Blotanical www.blotanical.com and if you are in to gardening, this is certainly a place to visit for inspiration and to meet likeminded people all over the world. I can easily see how my nights can get shorter and shorter and my sessions on my laptop longer and longer in the future…Yikes!
OK, that’s it for tonight, I am off to meet some likeminded gardening fanatics on Blotanical, see you next time, take care :-)
