Keep the cold of winter away, rugged up in front of the cosy open fire or venture outside for beautiful scenes like these.
In the garden it is a dormant time for our plants. We get busy with pruning over 200 roses…………so the garden looks a mess for a month or two. When we finally clear away the prunings, we get a real sense of the bones of the garden. Many of our trees are deciduous, so the form becomes very visible and it has a charm all of its own. It is cold here in the Clare Valley in winter and we get lots of frosts because we are low down in a valley.
