Today we closed to the public after a great season in many ways and so for me it is the start of a new year. It was great to be away as now I am ready for a fresh start. I can start all over again and the mistakes I made in the past twelve months are now behind me. It is now time to look forward. I am not in the garden tomorrow because we have a study day but after that it is time to get ready for the first frost, hope we have a little time before it gets here and I can be ready for it.
