A brief potter on the first day of the year.
Well, the sun came out today after days of gloom and rain so we managed a muddy walk in the country and lunch in a pub garden. Had the roof down driving back!
Then I wandered out into the garden to do a bit of tidying up. Cut back some Clematis. Swept up some leaves. Cursed the slugs already nibbling the bulb shoots.
Beginning to see some signs of spring. Flowers buds on the Hellebores and Chaenomeles. Winter flowering honeysuckle blooming with a dopey bumble bee doing the rounds. Snowdrops coming up.
Tomorrow and the rest of the week the forecast is more rain and gloom. But what a difference a drop of sunshine makes to your mood.
Anyone else had New Year's Day in the garden?
