I’m back to work today, so I’m posting a review of my past #IAVOM projects, one for each month of the year.
Good luck to everyone who’s back to work, school or college today. The days are getting lighter, ever so slightly, so we’ll be able to spend our evenings in the garden again soon.
Meanwhile, enjoy my ‘slide show’ of photos from my garden, though the year.
Paperwhite narcissi, black hellebores, pittosporum and eucalyptus foliage. Decorating a willow wreath with flowers in a jam jar hidden inside a moss kokadama ball.
Snowdrops, crocus, cyclamen coum, puschkinia.
