Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees,

Naturalistic Tableau.

After an 11-year absence Dan Pearson returned to Chelsea to win a Gold Medal and the coveted ‘Best in Show’ for his Laurent -Perrier Chatsworth show garden.

February, being the last of the winter months, often ends up being the coldest.

This said there are signs of spring everywhere, Galanthus nivalis (snowdrops)the first to emerge, they arrive when they are most needed, as the cold winds from the North chill you to the bone. En masse they are a wonderful sight…

Narcissi, Crocus and Eranthis (winter aconites) follow on and Cyclamen as the days lengthen ‘lift the spirit’. If you haven’t already, now is your last chance to ‘winter prune’ Wisteria.
There is still time to prune top fruit , before the sap begins to rise, and planting of soft fruit may continue throughout February.

Looking Ahead...

In the Spring of 2014 I had the pleasure once more to visit ’The Alhambra Palace’ in Granada, Andalusia.

Here are some images that I found captured the atmosphere of this special place.
