Happy New Year, and a milestone
Hellebore seeds (from Bobby Ward) germinating: an optimistic start to the year.
At some point in the early hours of this morning, the stat counter registered the 300,000th visit to this blog. Although I write it primarily for my own amusement and as a record of what I'm doing (it is a very handy aide memoire, often used), it's good to know that so many people have visited and find some value in it. From kind comments delivered verbally and on here I know that it's not just my mother coming back repeatedly: thank you all for your interest, and may I wish you a happy and enjoyable 2014 in your gardens and beyond.
