Our box trees in the garden have all gone now. There were about 12 of them and they were being ravaged by the box tree caterpillar. They’d grown very large and so there’s a lot of space in our garden now. It’s quite daunting!

We’ve also given up our allotment and so I’ve got a new compost bin here and am enjoying not having to go to the allotment with the kitchen waste. I’m also piling up the leaves to make leaf mould. Other than that, we’re just waiting for spring and the bulbs to start appearing.

The Sunflowers and Salvia were looking glorious right up to the first frost and I’ve left the seed heads to feed the birds.
