The eucalyptus has had the top four metres of growth removed. The wrong time of year to do this.........had we not done it, the tree would have come down in the strong winds, we had a month ago. The tree is of great sentimental value, as Mr P and I planted it the first spring we arrived. I am sure it will be fine, despite it's early haircut.......
Mum and Dad bought me The Ivington Diaries for Christmas. Monty Don is my favourite gardener. I love his style......his organic ways......and his uncomplicated thinking. He has many wonderful ideas, so I am trying to think how I can use them here........roll on warmer weather, when I can put thoughts into action......
in a world of one colour
the sound of the wind
I shall send The Forgotten Garden to you soonest.
A happy and healthy New Year to you all.
