Beautiful Spring Hello, and welcome to the April edition of “The Brambles Journal” – Beautiful Spring. I love this time of year as everything in the garden and nature transforms. Not only are the flowers amazing, with so many gorgeous colours, the trees too are a joy to look at. They also have an amazing number of colours.

Winter in the Garden Hello, and welcome to the new style journal for The Brambles. I’m really excited by this new magazine format. It’s been in my head for so long, and now finally it’s here :) I started working on the style and the best way to share back in December last year. Progress has been a little slower than I hoped as I came down with the cough/cold thing that’s been circulating. Finally getting rid of it now! January has been busy in the garden, with lots of visits from hungry birds. They are always such a pleasure to…
