Winter Garden Work

It's hard to find the motivation to do any gardening at all, with the weather being a cold, rainy, windy, and generally unpredictable. I use the Winter months to do my maintenance work - tidy the potting shed, repair trellises, weed and mulch. (so not much gets done). This year, I'm hoping to finish painting the side fence in the front yard - it's only been half painted for the last 5 years!. Wish me luck.
