Congratulations, the start of another year & you’re still here & reading our blog, I’m thrilled that the days have started to lengthen and was out gardening until 4.22pm yesterday, meaning that life has taken on a more positive feel. I know everyone isn’t as obsessive as I am about the great outdoors but its worth making the effort even if only for 5 minutes to feed the birds, break the ice on a puddle for them & marvel at how many plants you have in flower.  Our Snowdrops, Cyclamen, Hellebores & Primulas are making bright little cameos all over the garden.
