I haven’t done a slideshow of my garden in winter before because the garden is asleep and I haven’t wanted to disturb its slumbers. But this year I ventured out with a camera and found that there is, in fact quite a lot going on as the garden gradually comes back to life. The first plant to come into flower is the Hellebore, or Christmas Rose, closely followed by the Christmas Rhododendron, with it’s tiny purple flowers.
The idea of Slow Life is to take the principles of Slow Food, which are “good, clean and fair”, and extend them to life in general.
Here in the Lake District, the air is clean, the pace is slow and the atmosphere is calm. If we don’t grow food ourselves, we can buy it in friendly small shops, where you know the quality is going to be the best.
This blog is a celebration of the Slow Life, with forays into the world of design, music, the arts, gardens, and my particular weakness, Japan.
