It’s pretty misty this morning. It makes the garden look all spooky and forgotten. Everything is covered in dew and it brings out the colours on the few things that are left in the garden at this time of year. I’m down to my last Leeks, patches of Spinach, some Kale, the Parsley is still hanging in there, and the Mint is probably still edible. So, not much.
I can’t even see the hillside anymore. Very mysterious and creepy and horror film like. Don’t you think? Actually, just after I took this shot the posty arrived in his bright red van – kinda ruined it a bit for me.
Back in the garden one of the few things that is edible right now is my Kale. The plants are quite small (planted them out too late) but as there are a few of them I should have enough Kale to go around. It looks particularly good in the dew.
It’s nearly time to cut the Raspberries down to the ground (early Feb) but for now they lend a certain interest to the garden with their crispy shapes that look like Star Anise.
After rummaging around the shed and shifting some stuff around I dragged my poor old bike out. It hasn’t seen the light of day since before Jackson was born (have you ever seen a pregnant woman riding a bike – exactly!). It’s time to get back on the old girl, I think. She’s in a sorry state though. Flat tires, covered in stuff that looks like sawdust (not really sure where that came from) and some rust starting to show. But the bell still works and that’s the main thing, right?
