So Christmas has come and gone. As , unbelievably, so has the first month of 2013. The garage has been emptied of fifteen years’ clutter. And the garden is getting a tidying it hasn’t seen in years; the sickly and unsightly plants (and weeds) have been removed and all manner of unruly denizens (the main offenders being the lavender and fuschia and ) have been mercilessly pruned back. I’ve started a compost heap, and begun to sow herbs.
Also enjoying Yo La Tengo’s new album Fade. The music video for Ohm seems to capture the thoughts of trees, and plants and all things garden-ey filling my head.
