There is a wren in my workroom with me as I write (working on 'Venetian Gardens') It has been here all morning and seems to like burrowing behind my books and files even though the window is wide open for it. Other than the cold, I am rather enjoying its company.

Although there is a debate to be had over the extent and duration of the licence fee, the government freeze will save payers the grand sum of 15 pence per week over the coming year. However it will mean that programmes like Adriatic Gardens will be much less likely to be made.

The annual BBC licence fee was due to rise by £1.50 in April This Government's NI rise in April 2022 will cost someone on the average wage £250 and the income tax threshold freeze will lose them c.£150. Cutting Universal Credit took £1040 a year away from the poorest households

From gooseberry cuttings to mulching to compost and more, this is the sort of advice I need from @TheMontyDon for January chores in the garden, where I spent most of the day. (A major preoccupation of my off-Twitter life, e.g. my "real" life.) montydon.com/tips-and-advice…

The Government have gone against their own advisors and approved the use of bee-killing pesticides in England. This decision is catastrophic for our pollinators and will ultimately lead to the harm of wildlife ❌ 🐝 🚩 wildlifetrusts.org/news/gove…

Tomorrow night at 8pm on BBC2 my Adriatic journey continues from Trieste down to Dubrovnik and the small island of Lopud- taking superb gardens and landscapes ( such as these turquoise lakes at Plitvice) along the way.
