And it's time to have a look at the garden as it continues its winter slumber...
We're sort of in hibernation mode ourselves, which is probably very obvious seeming as our last post almost two weeks ago was a photo of a duck! Just as I was about to to get stuck in to gardening around that time Gaz suggested that we continue redecorating the rest of the house instead. The ground floor has been done up with the house renovation we had last year, as well as parts of upstairs. The bedrooms just need to catch up though with the rest of the house and the first one to be tackled in the guest room (more on this later). Sensible suggestion, best to get indoor decorating out of the way before spring arrives and the garden takes priority again.
The temptation to stay indoors and not even venture out at all was very high seeming that we are in the middle of a cold spell of sorts. We even had some snow in the morning which fortunately melted away by noon. Tonight temperatures are predicted to dip down to -4C in our area.
A quick once over never does harm and I'm glad I broke the inertia and had a little walk in the garden today...
The view from the patio is looking exotic even at the start of February.

Gardening routines after work are usually no more than a little stay in the koi shed we finished weeks ago but length of daylight is increasingly becoming noticeable and it won't be long before we can do other gardening activities getting back home from work. The guest room has been mostly finished redecoration too, with just finishing touches left to be done (accessories etc). I'll be sharing what we did to that bedroom in the past few days later. It was fun and was somehow botanical inspired.
