5 December

Its beginning to feel a bit like Christmas, or so the song goes, we have got quite a bit of our Garden preparations done ahead of winter taking hold, plants are safely tucked away into greenhouses, and the large shed. Last weekend we had a couple of nights with temperatures hitting -3C so the tender annuals on the whole have now given up. Not all though as a selection of pelargoniums in pots by the front of the house are still alive and kicking, but the annual display of succulents have given up the ghost, as has the tall and imposing ricinus above. So attention can start to turn to indoors and Christmas, we have been looking at a selection of Christmas gifts and started to pick a few things out as suggestions. We normally get a few small garden related presents, recent years have included wind up torches (for going to check on the greenhouse heaters after dark) and mugs with caps to keep the tea nice and hot. Will have to suggest a few things to family for them to pick up on this year.

When it came up, I thought it a sad picture - but you have given it a cheerfully positive spin.

Its all part of the natural cycle. Over the next few weeks we can start cutting back and getting the garden clear ready for the new year
