That Garden Thing; December, part 1 #garden

It’s been mild; not warm and there’s been a fair bit of rain, but 12C isn’t going to frighten any aphids. So, we’ve finished the new shed

and re-stained the summer house

and cut back some of the mucky herbaceous borders.

But really there’s not a lot to do right now so it’s good to feel ahead.

I just wish it would get cold and nip off some of the colour and the bugs and diseases that are sheltering…

But can’t complain.

Can we, boy?

    I’d love to have flowers blooming now, but if they are doing so, it’s under the snow! Don’t wish them away, enjoy them!

  6. Envy you your shed Geoff. Hubby prepared the area, but is unable to order one without some stupid 6 month delivery delay! He is seriously thinking about buying fence panels and making his own! Your garden looks lovely.

    Still blooming flowers. This year is really crazy when even it looks beautiful. But I agree, I hope that we are going to have some really frosty days in order to kill some of the bugs and mosquitos. At least, we already have some snow. Fingers crossed that it will last until Christmas.

    Love that first pic, Geoff (and of course the one of Dog). I think we’ve had two frosty mornings and one day we woke up to snow, which disappeared very quickly. I’ve not been in my garden for ages now – much too wet. As I can’t see my garden from anywhere in the house, it’s easy to forget about it for now.
