Northumberland, United Kingdom
Not a question - just had to share this with likeminded folks (my non-gardening pals gave me rather pitying looks when I told them!!). I hadn't really been in the garden properly for weeks - just surveyed the devastation from the window. However, on Sunday the sun came out for a couple of hours so I thought - it's now or never! I donned the wellies and went for a wander to try and work out where the heck I was going to start the big clear up. However - as I wandered, every now and then I would crouch down and low and behold, there would be new shoots and growth on what I thought were dead shrubs and plants - also lots of snowdrop and other bulbs well through the ground - all celebrating their new life! I actually shed a tear or two of pleasure. Now I can't wait to get out again to tend them.
