A Frosty Start On Our Little Urban Homestead

I do love winter. Not only is Christmas just 20 days away, my birthday is 25 days away, but the Elf has come to stay and the home is looking and feeling cosy with the fire roaring.

After the school run, I popped out into the garden to do a few tidying jobs. There’s not much to do but clean and tidy the garden once winter is in full swing. But I still love being outside. We’ve only lived here for 3 months so the garden is no where near ready, but we’ve been working hard to prepare it for spring when all the fun kicks off. I snapped a few wintery photo’s which made me fall in love with the season, and its effects on the garden that little bit more. Enjoy!
