Well, it’s here. December has arrived. The weather for the past three days has been gorgeous, cold, crisp, and frosty. The garden looks like Christmas is on the way, so seasonally white and sparkly. We took a break from fulfilling Genus' Christmas orders and donned our warmest gardening clothes. The Genus gilet, gloves with silk liners and the arm and neck warmers were all hotted up in front of the wood burner ready for us to put them on, and we spent several hours outside, yesterday and today, continuing to enjoy and love the garden in winter. The seed heads of various plants looked great, with the clematis making it’s own form of fluffy snow falling across the rose arch. There were veg to be picked, the cavolo nero also looking magical in its own way, catching the light and glistening with icing sugar frosting. The other amazing feeling was coming back in from the cold and warming up again, such a treat to have the wood burner and a freezer stocked with homemade soup from garden veg to do that job. All we can say is get out there and enjoy the garden in all it’s winter beauty. We love it.
