Happy New Year Everyone

I just love the build up to Christmas & the day itself ... but once it's over I always feel a bit deflated & want to pack away the cards n' decorations and get back outside (I know, what a Bah-Humbug)
I did resist until today and now the cards are down and chopped up into next years gift-tags.
Whilst everyone else seemed to opening up iPads on Christmas Day, much beloved romantically bought me a 'kneePad' ... hmpfh. But the romance didn't end there ... oh no ... I also got a patio / decking wire broom (I can feel your envy) ... and ... wait for it ...... a new garden Dibber.
Who said the romance is gone.
I've just made this acorn leaf birthday card for a friends dad. Now I'm really itching to go out & start pottering in the garden. It's been so mild here, we don't seem to have gone through that dirty &  miserable wintery stage outside yet. In fact, it's looking positively Spring-like and I already have a few blooms.

Anyway, it's a New Year and I hope all your gardening dreams for 2012 come true.

Dear Jayne, I did get an iPad from my son, but the gifts from my husband were similar to yours. Love 'em anyway. Have a happy and healthy 2012! P. x

Haha, kneePad.. I'm surprised my husband didn't come up with something like that!

And a broom and Dibber! I had to actually look up what a dibber was. (I am not as sophisticated a gardener as you.) Your husband buying you garden tools that some people have never even heard of - how lucky you are! Have fun with your new garden tools :)
