How good it feels to be turning a corner on a long, wet winter and peering into Spring. The sap is rising, soil warming, days are stretching out and like many gardeners, I’m itching to get out in my garden, full of renewed vigour, developing new areas for our family, visitors and menagerie of animals to enjoy.
Winter is the season I enjoy my garden best. It slows into an undemanding, peaceful space where I can relax and step off the treadmill. It’s a time to absorb and observe. And marvel. For there is so much beauty in the winter garden for a quiet observer.
