January 1, 2007

W.H.Auden put it well:
"I want to approach the future as a friend, without a wardrobe of excuses."
And so my year began with toast and Marmite, a cup of tea and sowing under glass the bluebell and cowslip seeds I stratified in November; Endymion non-scriptus "Bell Bottle" and Primula veris. Tomorrow I shall continue with seed sowing, and also make a start on clearing the pond and tying in the soft fruit canes. I might even make time to pot up the hyacinths and plant the last box of tulips, my favourite of all the lipstick-reds, Hollandia.
