A Year In The Secret Garden - December

It's the beginning of December, which means it's time to share the latest photo of our secret garden:

For the past couple of months, I've been taking a photo of the garden on the 1st day of the month, in order to build up a picture of how the garden changes through the seasons:

Here's November's photo as a comparison: 

Brrr, it looks a lot colder in the garden right now! The hawthorn, apple and forsythia trees have all lost the leaves - revealing the wooden pergola and little patio at the back of the garden. But there's still a ton of greenery, thanks to the evergreen eucalyptus, olive trees, bamboos, cordylines and clematis.

You can see a photo gallery of our garden through the seasons here.

Back tomorrow with an Etsy Christmas card round-up! Or possibly some more Nest DIY pictures. Or some pictures of the dogs. Or maybe a sneak peek into a lovely Paris home. Ooh, too much to blog about!
