What a lovely walk around your garden with you, Roz. I had never heard of leaf netting, but it seems a very wise thing to do. We clump our leaves onto the flowerbeds once they have been cleaned for the fall. Then in the spring the leaves that haven't decomposed are raked up and put in the compost. It does keep the weeds down during the winter. Happy New Year!

The lichen is so beautiful. There's an ancient woodland at Ebbor Gorge on the southern slopes of the Mendips, where lichen thrives. I must get up there once the weather and my health improve. The colour of the periwinkle is a delight. We have some winter pansies flowering their hearts out, and a miscellany of bulb shoots have been bravely/foolhardily showing since November. Rarely is anything as dead and barren as first it seems. As a friend once misuoted, "A garden is a thing of beauty, and a job forever"!
