One of her friends sent Judi an amaryllis in time for Christmas. It's in the dining room (NNE facing) and has an amazing array of blooms at the moment. I don't think I've ever seen one before - it's really beautiful.
Not much happening outside, just tidying up the last of the leaves (Judi's the head gardener, I'm the occaional skivvy), although several shrubs have developed buds, along with the magnolia tree.
The walnut tree that appeared to be dead after last year's hard winter came back to life in June and has done really well, just needs a bit of pruning come Spring (which will be in February the way things are going in the UK...).
