Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
Yay, December and all the festive celebrations are well and truly upon us.
It’s lovely strolling around the village and admiring all the exterior Christmas decorations. Even with energy bills as high as they are, lots of people are still making that extra effort to cheer up the local folk.
Although, Christmas came early in the southeast of the UK this year, as we had a downfall of snow in Kent. Overnight we had around three inches of snow, the temperatures continued to stay well below zero, and the snow and ice remained for a week. Which is very unusual for us.
What we’ve been up to this monthIn the garden and on the website
To be perfectly honest, not too much has been undertaken in our garden for December.
We managed to collect another wheely bin full of leaves. Given the amount of foliage around, I think we could have filled another couple of bins.
As mentioned, then came the snow, so we couldn’t even see the garden let alone clear more shrubbery.
Last month I mentioned that I’d planted around 400 spring flowering bulbs. However, in early December, the weather had been relatively mild. To my surprise, a few bulbs had already started to sprout.
I’m now hoping the snow has encouraged the bulbs to lay dormant for a couple of months and re-appear in late winter or early spring.
