I think it must have been a result of being cooped up for so long that I decided to make a woodland garden at the end of our garden in the area between us and the road. So I cleared the area (see photo), bonfires were made (apologies to the neighbours but the end is in sight!) and planted the area with a fernery and spring plants dividing up existing snowdrops and introducing a number of hellebores. Shrubs are to follow. I hope to extend the plantings throughout the seasons.
