I did get my roses pruned and was halfway through the hydrangeas when the wet weather set in and now it's so muddy and wet underfoot, that I can't get in to the garden without sinking up to my ankles. I haven't even done any photography - the flowers look miserable and the birds, like me are keeping out of the garden.
Now there ate a few signs that Spring might be on the way. The daffodils are blooming - so bright and cheerful that it makes me feel happier with my lot. My magnolias are starting to flower and the faithful old camellias just do their thing year after year.
