Rainy Sunday

It’s a cold rainy Sunday, so decided to have a lazy day. I am following Spritzhenry’s lead and trying to put together a garden journal. I have been going through all the photos I have taken over the year and putting everything in order.
Plants, Borders, Tubs and baskets etc. Some of my photos have really cheered me up today so thought I would post a few on GOY. I appologise in advance if I repeat any. I can see this project is going to keep me busy for the near future but hopefully will be useful as I hope to change a few things next year (moving plants around in the spring etc. I’m not happy with one or two borders and I will be able to refer to it when I am making these changes. GOY has given me so much inspiration, the gardens pictured are amazing and some of the plants just so lovely I want them all. I will probably have to move to a bigger garden though.

Thanks for the comment on my 'system', Holly. To go alongside my photo journal, earlier this year I bought an RHS five-year Gardeners' Logbook. I find this very useful for notes of what and when I've done certain tasks, e.g. pruning, what to look for, where to find it, plants I've seen during Garden visits, suppliers etc. As the journal says, it does away with the endless bits of paper I used to have scattered around. Just thought it worth a mention, it would make a good Christmas gift for a keen gardener!
