Happy New Year!

 Xmas has been and gone with a cupboard full of lemsips and anti-biotics for many. It's such a shame when family members are ill at Xmas. We all look forward to that one day and then you have that pale, wan face sitting at your table, pushing a bit of turkey around the plate and looking white and scary underneath a red xmas hat. Thank goodness it's milder and we can all get out in the fresh air and walk off the excess and feel the sun on our faces. It's already getting lighter – have you noticed? I have primroses in the garden and we went to Winkworth Aboretum for a walk on New Year's Day and there were daffodils in bloom. I'm always so pleased to get the xmas tree OUT of the room (i've had enough by boxing day) and bring in all those little treasures I've been nurturing in the greenhouse. Now, my rooms are full of pots of crocus, hyacinths, narcissi and amaryllis and I have baskets of primroses on the window sills. It's always worth planting bulbs in the Winter for this very reason. Be gone cold weather, red noses, hacking coughs and duvets on the sofa. Spring is on it's way!
