No Walking Well photos this post as I didn’t go! The walk was in Upper Brynamman, the other side of the mountain that we look out on. It would have been a special walk but to get there meant driving across the mountain and there was snow on that there mountain so I decided to be sensible (!) and go shopping in the Coop instead!!

I’m so pleased I did as I met a number of shoppers and had some lovely chats especially with one particular shopper!

The weather has truly been up and down or should I say snowy and sunny!

Aberglasney were hosting the Bonsai annual exhibition which proved very popular with visitors and me!

The Gardens are looking beautiful in the early spring with lots of exciting additional plants being added by the new Head Gardener.

Lots of activity with the birds in the garden. The Canada Geese flew in and out again and have returned today with some hangers on that they don’t want so there’s lots of honking and shouting going on! The mallards keep out of their way and just swim around all the squabbling and the moorhen follows suit!

A little tree creeper keeps coming back to the tree outside the kitchen window and pecks away at something delicious on the bark! The squirrel thinks it’s a bird as it takes flight when I bang on the window!!

The garden is surviving! It has been blasted by cold winds, basked in sunshine and covered in a small amount of ice and snow all within the last weeks! Daffodils are blooming and the snowdrops fading fast but lots of signs that spring growth is coming and I can’t wait!

For Ukraine…my flower arrangement in Aberglasney!

This is quite a rushed post as I am waiting for the arrival of our son and family from Canada. They are staying two weeks so I’m very excited!

Hope you all have something wonderful to look forward to as well! Enjoy St Patrick’s Day !

      Thank you for reading. They’ve arrived! The garden is now even fuller of life with the twins racing around playing rugby! The rain over the weekend has turned everywhere into a swamp!! No time for gardening or sorting it all out for next two weeks!
