End of Month View of the Garden – December 2018
With thanks to Helen at The Patient Gardener for hosting this meme.
A tale of two Decembers.
The Weather people are telling us that January 2014 has been one of the wettest on record, and I’m inclined to agree. We’ve only had 6 days of this year so far without any rainfall, the ground in my garden is sodden, and now I’m seeing small pools of water forming after each downpour, today I set about prodding these areas with a big fork in the hope I can drain some of the wet away.
I think all this cold water sitting in my soil has had an effect on my Winter and Spring Bulbs, I’m seeing lots of pictures appearing on the internet of big bunches of Snowdrops in full flower, however my plants are only just getting going.
At the moment here it appears I am only getting hard frosts on Saturday nights into Sunday mornings.
