December delights, in the garden that is…..
The crunch of leaves under my feet, I find myself shuffling through the leaves to amplify the sound, much as my children did years ago. Living in the city we would have to go to a park to find this carpet..
I refuse to have them raked just yet. The ‘Mighty Oak’ has not yet dropped its leaves….
so that’s my excuse, but really….too much fun!
French Breakfast radishes from the Potager and Spicy Baby Lettuce ready for a small salad.
Perfuming the air is the shrub “Wintersweet” Chimonanthus praecox.
It always blooms for my birthday. What a gift!!
The Golden Season is upon us. The quality of light has changed and there is more than a touch of nostalgia in the air.
The weather in Georgia is still fine; the daytime temps are mild with crisp early mornings and evenings.
While we cannot boast the colour changes of the northern states, there is still much to celebrate.
The early camellias are blooming……
and the salad garden is coming along….
Gardening may slow down a bit but it does not end. Still have to weed!
