A gardener’s Christmas

Thank you to my family and friends for the thoughtful Christmas gifts. I’m going to be the smartest gardener in 2013 as I received lovely new gardening gloves, tools, seeds and books. I cannot wait to get out to the allotment and put these gifts to good use.

And for after I take a much-needed shower after digging in the dirt I have a gorgeous new fragrance – Givenchy’s Dahlia Noir.  See, I’m not all sweat and dirt – I’m a girl too!

Finally, thanks to lovely friends Pat and Steve for their wonderful hospitality, a beautiful festive table and a cooling swim in the pool.

Love to you all.

And to everyone reading this blog, I wish you happy gardening in 2013.

    Happy and most productive gardening Jean…this year we build a monolith of a vegetable enclosure and we might even put viewing platforms around the sides for the possums to sit on and lust wistfully about the forbiden greenery just out of their reach ;). 2013 is our year to learn as much as we can about growing vegetables and put it all into practice. I have learned so much in 2012 from all of the gardening blogs that I follow and yours is one of the best 🙂 Thank you SO much for your posts and I am so glad that I found your blog this year and here’s to a year of sharing, interesting posts and happy comments both ways 🙂

      Hi Fran. Just realised I havn’t responded to this comment. Thank you for your kind words. I have enjoyed reading all about your adventures at Serendipity farm too.
      I have been admiring your vegetable enclosure with all the fishing net. This is sure to beat the little critters. Happy gardening in 2013.

    What great gifts. I received a staple gun for reupholstering furniture and a glue gun for my gifts this year. I love when people know you well enough to know exactly what you can use and will appreciate.
