Christmas Greetings

Very best wishes to all readers for a happy and peaceful Christmas Time. carmarthenshire-landscape-1Certainly no Christmas snow’s going to fall this year on the county’s meadows, and whilst it’s a time when you’d be hard pressed to tell a flower rich meadow, from a more intensive one, maybe the activities of some of the wildlife which shares these space with us, gives us a clue that for them a wildflower meadow holds greater appeal…12050160a-212110050-2a-212050166-2a-212060034a-2

We even had a Welsh hornet visit our valley yesterday, to trace and sort out a power outage problem in a local overhead line, in advance of today’s arrival of Storm Barabara…sdim0784-3sdim0774-2sdim0769-2Three Christmas Cheers for Western Power Distribution, and that amazing helicopter pilot.

Batten down the hatches and keep warm.

About thegardenimpressionists - Julian and Fiona Wormald

Julian and Fiona Wormald met and married whilst at Cambridge University. Shortly after qualifying we established our own veterinary practice in Bristol which we ran for over 20 years before relocating to West Wales. We have restored our derelict longhouse home and created a garden over the last 27 years, which we now occasionally open for charity, by appointment, for the N.G.S. About 11 years ago we started "The Garden Impressionists" to reflect our current ideas. Our principal gardening influences over the years have included the gardens and writings of Claude Monet, Beth Chatto, Joy Larkom and William Robinson. Incorporating some of their ideas and philosophy into our own garden, alongside our own ideas of what is important for this location and climate, has kept us physically and mentally challenged as the garden has developed.
