It is almost a year since I started my blog back in January 2017 when our garden was looking decidedly dull and dreary. The year that followed was our first full year in the garden. Looking back through my photos from that year has been both pleasurable and informative. It is reassuring to remember how the garden springs into life in March and April, reaching its peak in May and June, before growing unwieldy in July and August and going over in September and October, with a last few delights to offer in November.
December and January are not the best months for our north facing back garden, but today I have been clearing a south facing bed out front ready to be turned into raised beds for growing vegetables and cut flowers.
Over the next few days I am going to blog just some of the hundreds of photos I took of our garden in 2017, more than anything as an aide-memoire about what worked and what I need to change. Roll on 2018.
