Snow day!

img_0115Since it’s still not really the weather for digging yet, I’ve found a little job to get on with.

Topiary! I’ve never tried it but I’m surprised it’s never occurred to me before. I find it very relaxing to go out in the garden with the secateurs, in fact it’s my favourite activity.

I’m having a go with some rosemary, it’s been having small snips all winter so hopefully it won’t mind being pruned so early. I devised a little cage as a cutting guide and it should have filled out nicely by August.

I’m also going to have a go at a bay leaf pyramid. Since The Serendipitous Garden is only small, each plant has to earn its place. If it goes well, these should be good to eat, evergreen and interesting to look at.
