Our Tiny Garden: December 2020

#ourtinygarden2020

So here we are at the end of this long and peculiar year. This is the last of twelve blogs capturing the changing seasons in our tiny garden with 20 photos each month. At times it’s been a welcome distraction, though I have to admit to losing my way a bit with it mid-way through the year! Still, it is nice to have an account of the gardening year to look back on.

It has definitely been a year for hobbies and it is great to hear that so many people have discovered the joys of gardening as a consequence of our enforced time at home.

September delivered the last hurrah of summer with some lovely warm weather and dwindling opportunities to dry washing outside, as it gave way to more Autumnal temperatures. Many of the flowers that had carried us through the summer months were starting to fade but I added a few late additions to extend the season.
