It's that time of year again when I look back over the year in the garden and think about the future. This year the garden hasn't had so much attention due to our lack of time. I noticed looking back on the year, that the views were more of individual flowers rather than wider angles of the garden! The garden had to endure heavy snowfall from "The Beast from the East" and drought conditions during the summer and recent gales. The drought did work in our favour because the plants and grass didn't grow so high or quickly! We did however run out of water from the water butts and we have recently added another two now making 5 in total.
