|Well wrapped up against the cold|
The start of 2018 has been cold, wet and snowy. The garden has been covered under a thick blanket of snow for so long and finally it disappeared and now as I sit by the fire keeping warm it is snowing again!
My first wedding of the year is this weekend. The bride to be and her mother came to the house at this time last year to have a wander around the garden to choose the flowers for the wedding. There was lots flowering. Tulips, daffodils, hellebores, snowflakes and fritillaria. This year there is nothing! Luckily I can still source flowers from the UK from wholesalers in the south west of England so we will be ok which is a huge relief.
The seed sowing has continued and at last they seem to be growing. This weekend was spent planting out the first batch of sweet peas in the polytunnel. These were sown in January as the October sown seeds were killed off by the cold.
