            The early part of my year is spent wondering whether any of my plants are going to survive the winter. I am pleased to report that not only has everything has survived, everything is doing really well.

            Please forgive the messy bits. I hope to get around to tidying up soon. The lighter evenings are a bonus.

            I am particularly pleased with the Aubrieta in the front garden. I bought 3 for £5 from B&M and they were sorry looking things.
