The cyclamen plants in particular were a worry as they looked so colourful and cheerful.
A message came from my husband that the plants had all survived the snow and bitter cold winds. I have had a quick look this morning and pulled off a lot of dead cyclamen flowers but was heartened to see many new buds pushing up from a nest of leaves which are sheltering them.
After the garden re-vamp before Christmas I am looking forward to the snowdrops, a variety of miniature bulbs, and all the salvaged tulips and daffodils pushing up to herald the coming of Spring.
A new season with new promises.
After the unexpected and intensive research project of the last few months followed by report writing and submissions, I am also looking forward to a quieter life and channelling my research more into Charlotte's story. It is time that she came of the back burner!
