In My January Garden

I did a couple of garden posts last year, one in March when spring and new life were popping up all over the place and another in August when the flower beds were in full bloom. I thought it would be nice to do a regular garden feature every month. I have to admit I haven't spent much time in the garden and haven't done any work to it at all in months. I guess we are still in winter but the grass needs a cut and all the hedges & plants need trimming and cutting back. I just haven't had the time. Maintaining a home alone is a big job and along with everything else it's the garden that usually comes last. With all the rain & wind we've been having lately whenever there is some sunshine we usually make the most of it and go to the park or seaside instead. Saying that though we did spend some lovely time in the garden a couple of weeks ago and I took that opportunity to get some photos. It is still quite cold outside and I really can't wait for the weather to warm up a bit. I'm really looking forward to the colourful flowers blooming, spending time sitting in the garden in the warmth and inviting friends over for a BBQ! This will also be the first year that toddler helps me sow some seeds for our homegrown crop of tomatoes and salad! He's two and a half and at the age when he shows an interest in everything and loves helping me out at the moment. I'm sharing some snaps of the garden in January. When we were out there we had a little visitor who came to say hello (last photo).

Do you have a garden? What are you growing in yours?



  1. Your garden looks absolutely gorgeous. I love the little dewdrops. :]

  3. Ohh! How exciting all the buds are coming out and I expect it will blooms nicely soon. Do keep us posted with your garden - would love to see it in its full blooms. No wonder the cats want to come and visit too! :) Thank you for linking up with us again Polly. x #FabFridayPost

  4. There is so much greenery in your garden despite it being winter, my garden is totally dead!

  5. Yay - Spring is on her way although you'd be hard pressed to believe it this last 10 days as I think we have had every type of winter weather imaginable! #PointShoot
