21 Christmas’s ago Christopher gave me a five year dairy and told me that while I lived at Great Dixter I had to write in it daily and this past Christmas was the end of my 20th year of doing so. I am so pleased that he got me into the daily routine of doing this and I still very much enjoy it.



Fruit cage

My aim was to have the soft fruit in the fruit cage cleaned and a layer of mulch around it by the new year and I did it. I did had a few small jobs to do after a visit from Tom but it makes me smile to walk past and seeing it all looking tidy.
