After 2 weeks of none stop rain, wind and even some hail, I have finally ventured out in to the garden once more. That isn’t to say I haven’t been gardening or surrounded by nature. I have used the recent bad weather to start sowing seeds indoors and I have also been watching the birds […]
SPRING! Its finally here. Spring equinox, super moon and daffodils a plenty!
Today is the 7th anniversary of Rambling Round the Garden… good grief! where have those seven years gone?!

Stormy weather and a heavy cold have kept me indoors for the last week. Today the wind has dropped to 20 m.p.h. and the sun has shone. I therefore took a walk in the garden.
