My Garden Journal 2019 comes to an end this month, so here are the entries for December.
On the first page I wrote, “December sees most of the berries stripped from our shrubs and trees by dozens of thrushes including migrants who like our winter weather. A few berries remain to enhance he odd flowers, the grasses, seed-heads and evergreen shrubs.”
Over onto the next page I feature some of the more unusual and very subtle coloured foliage in our December patch.
I wrote, “Unusual coloured foliage of our evergreen shrubs come to the fore even on the dullest of days. Bronzes, browns, blushes, purples, blues, greys and greens with flecks of yellow.”
Over onto the third page for December and I talk of how much there is to see in our garden if you look down at your feet! “In our garden in winter it pays to look down. Silver glows and glistens at our feet. Silver leaf markings take on so many shapes and patterns.”
So just one final page for my December entries for 2019! Maybe my next year’s garden journal will be completely different?
For the last page of my 2019 Garden Journal I wrote, “I love sunny winter days when the low sun catches the colour and texture of twig and bark.” Then I featured a collection of ten photos of the light doing just that to a few of our trees and shrubs.

Wonderful – and thanks for showing your actual journal – I’ve tried digital systems, hand systems with my poor sketches, Old Almanac annual ‘garden journal/diary’ purchased version – and sigh – seeing your set-up inspires me to do it better this coming year!!! THANK YOU!!!!
Amazing documentation of your beautiful gardens.
