Hurray! Two days of sunshine in a row – and just before we set off for a little walk to get a breath of fresh air, I thought I would pop into the garden to see if there were any hoped for roses fresh for Christmas Day. Yes!
The garlic planted round them is doing well, as are the broad beans. At the moment, I am protecting them from frost (not that there has been much of that) with fleece, which might need to be adjusted soon, considering the rate they are growing at!
So we are heading towards spring for sure…. At the same time, my second pumpkin is almost ripe now. I finished off the last of the pumpkin cake the other day, so it’s great that I will be able to enjoy more before too long.
In the meantime, I’ve just remembered I have some chestnuts for roasting (not my own) but time for that walk first. I hope you are having a good day, whether you celebrate Christmas or not😊.
