My Garden in December

Well, here we are at the end of the year, and I’m not quite sure how and when that happened! I’ve enjoyed reflecting on what’s been happening in my garden each month and sharing it in a few shots, too. I’ve captured it through all seasons now, and through all of the work we’ve done out there, too. Looking back, we have got quite a lot done, with cutting a tree down, removing a shed, building a veg plot, adding a little wildlife garden and my favourite thing, my cut-flower patch.

And so to December.

I’ve actually still been planting! More roses (of course!) which have gone in the beds at the front of the house. My mum’s also bought us some hellebores for Christmas, so she’s gone and popped those in for us, too. They look lovely on the pictures, so I am really looking forward to seeing them bloom. All I have out there now are a couple of splashes of purple..

Aside from the planting and purples, though, it all looks so bleak out there. Just browns, bare trees, soggy leaves and greens. I’m not tempted to spend any time out there, so things are sprouting up all over the place, the climbers are still climbing, some shrubs are wilting, need cutting back, but it will all have to wait until springtime now.

But, it does feel like it was blooming and warm and pretty just a few weeks ago, so I suspect it’ll be flourishing again before I know it, and I’ll be back out there happily tending to it then. The cycle will begin again, and it will no doubt wow me again….

How’s your garden growing?
