you start on January One to write the things that you have done;But, as the ice is rather thick, and as the ground is like a brick—You start on January Two to write the things you mean to do;But, as the snow has just begun,you wait till January Three to really start your diary;But, as you seem to have a chill, and you are feeling rather ill, and diaries are just a bore—you wait till January Four;When as there’s nothing you can say, you throw the beastly book away. R Arkell.
I don’t have a diary but still like to make notes re when things start to bloom. It’s surprising how it varies from year to year. Also a good idea to note dates of any sowings or plantings.Not much to write in January tho’.Just wet,wet.Are my daffs supposed to be poking up &showing their buds? I did plant some early vars. Some dry, frosty , sunny weather might hold them back a bit.Happy Gardening year to all GOY members.
