Okay, haven't updated much. I did get my garlic in on Christmas Eve and today popped over the the POURING rain. Honestly, it looked like it was going to clear up but I've never been so wet in my life - it was the first time ever my Howies jacket actually got soaked through. But I wanted to bring my lavender plants over to transplant them because they've been knocked off my back deck twice now by high winds. So they're in a little corner of the flower bed now.
Unfortunately some of the flower bulbs seem to be coming up. And I suspect even some of the garlic. I can't believe it but I wish we would get a proper frost.
Tomorrow was going to be my proper day off but it's supposed to rain, so I guess I'll postpone a day of bramble chopping until Monday or Tuesday.
