Winter Solstice

Brunnera ‘Jack Frost’

Today marks the winter solstice here in the northern hemisphere; the shortest day of the year. And while, as a gardener, you might think this would leave me cold, in fact, it’s just the opposite.

From here on, the days get longer! Spring is almost within sight (or is at least possible to fathom). The snowdrops are already coming up! It might not be time to dust off the gardening gear just yet, but I’m starting to plan the purchases necessary to begin construction on the back garden. I’ve got magazines and books marked with countless sticky notes, the design is almost finalized (details to come) and oh, I’m just itching to get outside. Anyone with me? Or just trying to get through the Christmas season?
