I was not sure that I would have much to write for my update this month, but it seems like, yet again January has surprised me. Although the month has seemed incredibly slow, it also feels like it’s whizzed by in some respects too.

Having a greenhouse in your garden opens you up to a whole world of new gardening opportunities. Not only does it enable you to keep your gardening hobby going throughout those cold winter months, but it also allows you to grow different plant species, with controlled temperatures and lighting. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a beginner or a pro, there are certain greenhouse features that are going to help make your gardening life that little bit easier and certainly more enjoyable.

Since moving house which has a lovely garden, my husband and I have decided that we are going to make sure we make the most of the garden. Though we have got off to a fairly slow start (as we moved at the end of the summer) we have managed to build a rabbit run and dig out some plots for veggies and add some bulbs to the flower beds. It has been on our to do list for this year, to grow some veggies and so when I was asked if we would like to review a mini polytunnel the timing couldn’t have been more perfect!

I am starting something a little different today on the blog, and it will run every Monday morning (and what a wonderful way to start the week…) and it’s called All About Books… basically I am going to ask different bloggers, authors and, well, basically anyone who likes or loves reading, some questions and then I am going to share their answers with you!

It’s been a while since I have joined in with My Sunday Photo but I just had to share this photo which I took in our garden. The garden has been hard work recently, it seems to just be an endless sea of brown, mud and leaves (which collect again and again no matter how many times they are cleaned up.)

But finally at last in the middle of the chaos of finally finishing the rabbit run, I found these little splashes of colour, and upon close inspection I found other little groups of these dotted about. The colour is so wonderful I just can’t wait until they bloom. I can’t wait to see our garden throughout the spring and summer. We moved in at the end of the summer last year so missed the best of the garden. Hopefully once the weather gets warmer we will see that it was worth the wait.
