Coming home from the school run just now, I noticed a white flower at the edge of the front garden.
Now, baring in mind that this garden is northeast-facing and direct sunlight is blocked by the roofs of houses across the road during December and January, I am particularly pleased to see a little flora appearing.
Hopefully, from now on there will be a swathe of colour to come home to. The hebe is also in its glory, with pink tipped leaves and the yucca has withstood the winter (including strong winds), so I feel I am starting to make some progress out the front.
Incidentally, the kale I planted in the front seems to be doing at least as well as the kale out the back. Whether that is because it is more sheltered or for some other reason, I can’t say, but it’s time I ate some of it!
