Visit my Snowy February Garden
Let me show you around my February garden. I hadn't been able to get out for a while and was getting cabin fever, so when I woke to blue skies I just had to get out. The snow had covered all the mess and jobs that needed doing and everything looked magical. It was such a lift to the spirits.
