Garden at the beginning of January 2012

And what a contrast with a year ago!

We now have plants!

And even more of a contrast with how it looked 18 months ago:

I think that's what I've enjoyed about doing Garden at the Beginning of the Month, is seeing both how the garden changes through the seasons (bearing in mind 2011 was a weird year, with April temperatures that were like summer, a winter that wasn't a winter and an autumn that didn't really happen) and also the amount that we've done to it in that time.

And of course, seeing other people's gardens who've also taken part in the challenge. Sometimes it was a challenge, particularly remembering to take photos in the darker months of the year.
I've put together a slideshow of the pictures, here:
