It's a sombre week in the world as we all come to grips with the reality of our current situation. How we manage over the coming months will test us all but never more so than now, will we appreciate our gardens!
It may be a bleak time of year with dull, wet days and long, dark nights but when the sun occasionally breaks through, isn't it just fabulous to see how the green in the garden lights up?
A walk round the garden this week in between rain and 50mph winds, reveals signs of great hope: buds and bulbs fighting their way to emerge! Amidst the bleak mid-winter, these pops of green are quite simply a joy to behold!
Evergreen plants and branches are used in lots of decorations at this time of year in our homes and as their leaves retain their colour throughout Winter, they have long been symbolic of immortality and eternal life.
With the glorious Spring sunshine around this week, it felt positively tropical in Glasgow! Did you manage to get out into your garden?
