Happy Christmas to every one reading this post, we marching with great steps towards the end of December an the New Year 2019 is getting closer all the time. The weather is glorious, the sun is almost hot and with every day getting longer, it is heaven to be out in the garden. Leaves are everywhere, some we can use for mulch other will go on the end of year fire, James has started a fire today. It has been very dry and watering has to be done. Some pruning of the roses and our plumbago is necessary, generally a big tidy up is under way.
