Journal 24.1.21

All has been very quiet on the home gardening front, with everything in its place and all ticking over nicely – there’s lots of activity to come but for now, this ultra slow pace is fine. Some grass seed that I sowed over the festive period is just starting to show through, and whilst the gravel-topped spring flower containers move not, the Miscanthus grasses frequently do with each chilly, passing breeze.
