This morning I woke up to a fine powdery snow falling from a sky the colour of pewter. The snowflakes looked so delicate and inconsequential that I could not believe the progress they made. Instead of dissolving as soon as they hit the ground, they soon clustered together to form a white carpet over everything they touched. My garden became a winter wonderland, blanketed with a covering of pure white snow making everything look so light and ethereal. I'm glad that it has hidden all the bare soil for a while!
This year's Sarah Raven catalogue arrived last week so I have been busy making plans, although I do admit that I feel rather overwhelmed when I see all the brown earth. It feels like I am starting from scratch all over again! I think I said something similar around the same time last year, I am a very impatient gardener! Poor Holly is also impatient, she wants the snow to melt so that she can go out and play again!
