A bright, frosty morning to wake up to today.
Strolling around my white, sparkly garden had me admiring the beauty and the scent of this beautiful Witch Hazel, Hamamelis intermedia "Jelena." Even in the depth of Winter, the garden surprises us with wonder and delight.
In fact, many of the plants that are flowering at this time of year give off a strong perfume in order to entice any solitary bee that happens to be passing.
It's January once again. A time to reflect on time gone by, but also to feel excited about adventures to come...and what to plant and grow in the garden this year.
I'm full of ideas, helped by the copious amount of seed and gardening catalogues that come through the letterbox on an, almost, daily basis. My plan, at the moment at any rate, is to keep things simple and not to try and not to overcomit to too many projects. We will see!
What about you? Do you have any garden dreams to acomplish this year? Perhaps Harrogate Garden and Flower School can help you?
I started gardening aged three, helping my father in our family garden. My passion has 'grown' from this point onwards.
