december at Corseside


By sandra


its been so warm here today it was lovely to be outside again…

we have had our fair share of rain over the last week but it was lovely today even the wind stopped…the colours on the shrubs are coming into their own .

with the long evenings i have been able to make a start on preparations for our daughter Rosies wedding next summer. with my obsession for recycling i have come up with an idea for the flowers.

what do you think?

elsewhere here at corseside…

in the greenhouse my christmas veg is looking promising

and the shrub cuttings are rooting well

my willow sculpture is sagging a little but hopefully ill get chance to work on it again soon.

my succulents are all tucked up in the tunnel for the winter.

i open all the doors every day unless its too windy and when it gets colder ill be covering these frames up at night with tarpaulin and old blankets

but its so important to let them breath fresh air in the day time..

last few tomatoes hanging on in there. these ildi ones are always my favorite

hope you enjoyed the tour…thanks for looking..:-)

Is this your nursery at Angle? Is it open all year? Please will you tell me how to get there? We have only been to Angle once, in the summer, and were amazed by the huge numbers of all kinds of butterflies. I keep intending to come over but these pics should tip the balance!
