We are very fortunate in this part of the North West, although we have had a huge amount of rain, we have not suffered the dreadful flooding that so many people have endured.

When the rain has stopped falling, the mild temperature have beckoned invitingly to have a wee pootle in the flower beds. But it is far too soggy to venture out and as quickly as the wellies and garden gloves have been donned, the clouds darken and the skies open. So instead I have had enjoy looking back at the photos and perusing new garden books from Christmas. My pressies were very garden themed. I was delighted.


I have to say that I had a bit of an inkling. While we were purchasing our gorgeous Christmas tree from our local garden centre, Little B dragged me over to a collection of beautiful galvanised watering cans. ‘What would you think Mummy, if you were ever choosing a watering can, would you think blue or pink? Just asking out of interest really’.

So I was delighted to find that a pink watering can was under the tree for me on Christmas day. There was only one problem, I didn’t realise what trouble I had let myself into having a garden orientated present list. My work colleagues were enquiring this week what I had received for Christmas;

‘Oh’, I replied, ‘I got a Haws watering can’. (The eyebrows went up). ‘….and a hoe!’

‘What type?’, my colleague quipped, ‘Alan Titchmarsh or 50 cent?’
