Spotted one Sunday afternoon in January

I haven't put anything on the web for some time. Not that we haven't been busy, more that the weather hasn't been very photo-friendly.

 We have six cordon apple trees now by the path, and another one in the main bowls area. With some bulbs between.

 We planted some basketry willow - three or so colours in our living willow circle... looking forward to it sprouting in the Spring.

 We moved some wood, making a turf seat, and disturbed this hibernating peacock butterfly. It slowly flapped its wings for several minutes, making a strange noise, so we put it back under the woodpile to have a longer 'sleep'.

 Adele the hedgehog, who was rescued from the garden a few months ago at 300g. Now at 1600g, she is the largest hedgehog in the hedgehog hospital. She will be re-homed somewhere safe in the Spring. We are so happy!
