January 2015

A FRESH NEW YEAR and the garden seems poised, full of promise, quietly waiting for spring to arrive. The rush of Christmas is over and my new 2015 diary is clear. Resolutions have been made and snowdrops and aconites are pushing through the soil, what could be better…

Decisions have been made and we are ready to take the plunge and start carving out new borders and planting shrubs and trees when the weather allows. A white-stemmed Betula utilis var. ‘jacquemontii’ is safely planted in the mini ‘wild meadow’ and quince and medlar trees are ready and waiting. These I have chosen partly for their historical connection to the area, both are growing in the garden of Gainsborough’s House Museum, birthplace of the English painter.

A new bed will divide the garden across it’s width and beyond that curved borders will further reduce the expanse of grass. Although it will take years to mature I relish being here at it’s new beginning.
