Dismal gardening weather!

Has been one of those dismal winter weeks, with the fog and frost not lifting on some days. Has given us chance to catch up some indoor work, like painting the delphinium supports dark green so they do not show as much as bare metal. Tony got this choice job, and Barbara and Debi spent one morning giving our restored Victorian vinery a good clear out.

As the photo shows, it is a good month after Christmas, and the leaves are still falling off our Copper beech tree onto the borders. It seems unusually late for them to still be hanging on, even after the cold and windy weather of late, they are only leaving one by one. Keeps the gardeners busy clearing up though!
