I think it is fair to say that December was rainy. Gosh so much rain, rain that has continued pretty much unabated into the first days of January. I never expect to be in the garden every day, but it has been so hard to get into the garden at all in December. The rainy weekends in particular, the main time I have to garden, have thwarted my gardening needs.
In the Courtyard Garden all is mossy and damp. The Camellia rosthorniana 'Cupido' has moved to further back in the Courtyard as I think she needs a little more shade than she was getting. She is also desperate to be repotted in the Spring and I have promised her this will happen. The little Christmas Tree has moved back to the side and is half relaxing/half sulking that its time in the spotlight is done for this season.
We are about to hit a frosty few days so this mild mild December will soon be forgotten as we move into the colder days. A few cold but dry days would be welcome as they would enable the ground to recover a bit from the rainy onslaught. We can but hope.
