Autumn:Winter:Baby

Moving from autumn to winter has happened in one week, in my garden anyway.

It was comforting to bring indoors the very last rose of the year.

And then there was a visit to a Christmas Fair at Harewood House that gave me some inspiration to move the outdoors – indoors.

I met Bert Blankers, a delightful Dutch guy who is also a bulb specialist, who fuelled my enthusiasm to bring some greenery and life into my house for winter.

So let’s watch these ‘paper whites’ brighten up my hall in the run up to Christmas.

I remember the traditional amaryllises that in Christmases of old you would buy for the aged Aunt who had everything. Well, I have bought myself a white amaryllis bulb, so there is something else to water, nurture and watch over the next few weeks.

Black tulips bulbs were on offer, so these are now planted in the garden for a spring surprise.

And I have a few more exciting events coming soon……Greygoose family, and her gosling have a new baby gosling: I hope I can soon be a Granny Goose to them all.

  1. I love the metal robin in your garden in the November post. May I ask where you bought him?
