This month's features
The title says it all, I guess. Wanted - free first class air tickets, pleasant companion to hold the camera, push away the crowds, and take dictated notes...
I've read this book six years after it was published - but good gardening books shouldn't grow old that quickly, should they?
Goodbye to my rustic, well-worn wooden outdoor furniture...
OK, it is winter, but snow? I don't remember ordering any snow...
I definitely want my own copy of this brilliant book, which I discovered in my library.
6. Plants of the Month : Sally Holmes Rose
Here's my small tribute to the real Sally Holmes, who passed away in April 2012.
7. Animal of the Month : Lilli-Puss the Grey Cat
Lilli-Puss, normally so reclusive, suddenly needs to reaffirm her love for me, and for gardening.
8. Garden Quote : Being G-O-O-D
Reward yourself for being a good gardener. So what exactly does G-O-O-D stand for?
You'll like these photographs of the little birds (mainly wax-eyes) that I enjoy feeding in winter.
10. Forum Focus : Slowing Down?
The forums have been a bit slow lately. It's a technical problem, which hopefully the Moosey webmaster will sort out soon. Sorry!
11. Gardening Advice : It's Obvious
Some gardening advice is so obvious, yet I always have to remind myself. And I don't think I'm the only gardener who does.
12. Searching for Moosey : garden tour
- garden tour
- Searchers are welcome to web-tour my garden any time. I try and update the tour pages, keeping track of improvements, while retaining historical pages. Can I suggest you start with the alphabetical beginning - the Apple Tree Gardens? Trees, shrubs, flowers, and garden features all get a mention.
12. Coming up this month : more winter
But good gardeners are tough, and at least my winters are reasonably mild. And I think I'm doing such a great winter clean-up this year, so the results should be spectacular. Shouldn't they? I love being in my garden, whatever the season. Hope you're enjoying yours, too..
