About Me

My photo
SW London
A semi-mature, hardy individual who tries to get away with doing as little as possible in gardening as in life, still expects the best results & wonders why she is frequently disappointed! She likes to keep a photographic record of everything, good & frequently bad!

Rumour has it that winter is here again!


More snow, although here in SW London it has been a fairly light covering. It seems that London is surrounded by much more serious conditions & as I write Mr B is still struggling to work through several signal failures.


It will be interesting, possibly upsetting, to see how the garden copes with this extended winter weather. Certainly in areas like this we have probably become quite complacent about what we grow & how well we protect plants during recent winters.

077The photos here were taken at Wisley On New Year’s Day. It was a beautiful cold & sunny day; just perfect after getting home at 3am after a wonderfully fantastic night at the Royal Festival Hall on New Year’s Eve where we enjoyed the music of Bellowhead in what can only be described as a festival in the RFH.





  1. Gorgeous photo's Ms B. That second one is really very special.

    We only have a couple of inches of snow at the moment thankfully, although it is trying to snow again :o(

  2. You've been Wisleying again - the second photo is indeed rather gorgeous! I'm rather jealous of your New Year. I don't think I have been awake to see the New Year in since 2000 which was the biggest most horrid let down ever.

    Ha ha! The WV is bowelly which is just how I feel!
