…..and the year moves along


Cyclamen are now flourishing…. so Christmas must be on the way.  A year that has flown into the past, despite the terrible pandemic and the effect on our daily lives.

So a gentle and colourful reminder of what is ahead was welcome.

But not just one reminder today… but two.

As the sun was shining this afternoon, we thought we best tidy up the garden before winter heads our way.  We got a little help from another symbol of Christmas – a Robin came along to supervise.


Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

    1. Some we are lucky with others not so fortunate. When they finish for the season I put the pots in a verybshsdy spot in the garden and forget them. Come October I look to see if any are showing signs of new growth. The ones that do are then brought into the sunlight.


  1. It’s really interesting how the birds commonly called robins vary so much from place to place. The New Zealand robin is, I believe, slightly larger than yours and sports shades of grey. The one we know from the US is a much larger thrush, brownish-gray with an orange breast.
