I spent some time in the garden yesterday planting one of my Christmas presents before it gets too cold, as the UK winter has been extremely mild so far. I thought this was a nice little job to do on New Year's day too. Anyway my sister bought me a David Austin rose called "William and Catherine" - you know how I love the royals so this was a perfect addition for the garden and I am looking forward to seeing the plant settle in and start to grow. If I am lucky it might flower for me this year too!

I have a few more things to look foward to in 2012 and I hope you will be here to read all about them in due course!
