January photo's

After reading a post on Carrie's "Grow our own" blog last week....  Reality   (Thankyou very much for writing it Carrie :) I have been inspired to have a go at various things a bit more, and one of those things (take more photo's) gave me the idea to do this.  I have decided to do a post each month with a few photo's to show the progress, or anything particularly seasonal, or just anything of interest around the grounds at home. It gives me a good reason to wander round with the camera and a mug of tea or two for an hour,  and see if I can spot anything that makes me smile :)

The wood store..... very important during the non gardening months ;)

My truffle tree is ready for spring.

I'm popular with the birds :)

First signs of some growth.

Hmmm.... well rotted manure is running low.

Not long until these flowers are out now :)

Well, that will do me for january..... I can't wait to do february's pics now (patience Simon:), there will hopefully be a whole load of new growth, some flowers, and maybe some sunshine in that one :) Until then, I hope you enjoyed these photo's, and i'll be back soon.


  1. Lovely photo's. One thing I'd love to see is the progress of the truffle tree :)

  2. I'll keep you posted. I only put it in last year so will be a while until I hopefully get a truffle or two.... I just need to train a pig to find them now :)

  3. Love the photos - nothing quite like a big pile of wood ready for the burner - ummmm cosy.
    Thanks for the mention :) I hope we can both take on board some of what i said x
