Normally at this time of year I am eagerly sorting through my seed packets wondering which ones I can get away with sowing so early. I am out in the garden cutting back and tidying up looking for signs of spring. Not this year …… I just do not know where my gardening ‘joie de vivre’ has disappeared to. All I want to do is snuggle up in my cave and read books (not even gardening books). I do not even have the excuse of the weather being too bad – it has been quite wet but I could still go out if I really wanted to. The urge is just not there. Hopefully soon the sap will begin to rise and my propagators and cold frames will be full of seedlings again.
