Newly Cut and All Ship Shape.

47 comments


A lovely sunny day , so what better way to spend it than cutting lawns and tidying the borders, hard work but a labour of love, it was great to sit back after I had finished and enjoy the garden with a cuppa;0)
Armed with the Mower and Shears off I go admiring the colours as I pass Polly’s resting place onto the Lawn.

Two hours later tired and with sore knees from all the kneeling Im finally finished, these next shots are taken from different angles of the garden.
The first is looking across the full lawn area.


Right side view, as you can see Im very fond of my Curves;0)

This view puts the Rockery in perspective with the rest of the garden.

Right side again showing views in the background.

Right back end border showing the Lovely Euonymus Standard, Hebe Paget and Daphne Odora.

Looking back now towards the House and Conservatory.


Left hand back corner looking towards the Pond Area.


Full view across the garden taken from the Patio area.

Looking towards side border and the back border,

Planting on the left hand side of Polly’s rockery.


Group of Pots on the left side, can you see your lovely Hebe Sandra its doing very well;0)

Sorbaia Sem planted near the Pond, just love the rainbow colours!

Water Feature and planting on front patio steps area.

View across patio steps from the house.

Well friends thats all for now, thank you for taking the journey with me, enjoy your Gardens;0))

Agree with Costas. It's a really beautifully kept garden...all your shrubs look loved. You clearly have an eye for detail Carole! I see you have a very lovely terra planter, and. I love your standard euonymus. The whole garden is super! :) thank you for taking the time to download all your photos. It's so lovely to have a full tour of a garden!

What a super garden. I love those full borders with such a great choice of shrubs and plants. Your curvy lawn looks splendid. I love the last photo with the steps to the lawn and the central water feature. I would love to have a garden like yours.

Your garden is a delight Pp and puts me to shame, have so much to do, don't know where to start. Think you should open your garden !!

17 Apr, 2014

 

PP your garden is absolutely beautiful and so wonderfully maintained. You should feel justly proud of your efforts and achievements it all looks fantastic. :):)

Your garden is truly lovely Pansy,I wish my lawn looked like that and I do like all your curves, I'm afraid mine is badly in need of treatment but I'm loathe to put the stuff down as it hasn't rained in ages (hope I don't regret saying that) I honestly do not know how you have the patience to trim all the edges, your choice of trees,shrubs and plants is amazing, I couldn't choose a favourite spot its all fabulous, however I do envy you the Sorbaia Sem and thats going on my wishlist..
Lovely photo's of a beautiful garden, I enjoyed the tour, thankyou....

Sorry I'm late,Carole..I missed this lovely blog and Photo's of your wonderful garden..everything looks so pristine and colourful..a real credit to your artistic flair..and you still have lots more to come,with all your summer bedding and all those seedlings,you vowed you weren't going to do again this year !.:o) .xxx

19 Apr, 2014

 

Thanks Sandra I have just popped in for a bite to eat! I am in the process of washing my pots down and giving them a tidy, the dwarf Rudebeckia are the Rustic species so will be annuals!!

19 Apr, 2014

 

A busy afternoon for me too..getting down and dirty to the depths of my Compost bin ! All top layers not rotted down were piled into bin bags,and good stuff all now dug in borders..Russell had to do the last few loads,as I was flagging :o) I now have room fo the next lot .Glad you got your Rudbeckia's identified,,they will be lovely :o). I am now going to treat myself to the Easter egg from Thomas ..not waiting till tomorrow,I've earned it Lol x

19 Apr, 2014

 

I always enjoy a wander round your lovely garden, PP, all your efforts are showing - it's beautiful. Hope you enjoyed your Easter egg :)

19 Apr, 2014

 

I like seeing all the different angles of your lovely garden Carole. It looks very mature, I bet it looks good at any time of the year, but you sure have a lot of spring colour and all blends beautifully:-)

19 Apr, 2014

 

Thanks Sandra I ve not got round to my compost bin yet but washed all the pots on the patio area! Weare off to see Robin this morning, Ive just made some scones as Simon and Clare are popping round later this afternoon, and dont eat anymore Easter Eggs as you wont get in your new Cropped Trousers lol

20 Apr, 2014

 

Thanks Gee Im Pleased you enjoyed your stroll around my garden , you are welcome anytime;0)

Thanks BA , Spring is a lovely time isnt it! the garden has matured and its sometimes difficult to fit in new plants, but it doesnt stop me buying or growing more lol

20 Apr, 2014

 

Good job we didn't call round to share those lovely scones of yours,with Simon and Clare then,Carole..or I might have had to exchange them for a bigger size :o) I bet Harry was glad ,he didn't have to share his ! Lol
We went to the Foxhouse again,for a lovely carvery..so he was quite safe Lol x

20 Apr, 2014

 

Sandra, Robin was very pleased to see us, especially as we had goodies, got a lovely suprise too , Ruth one of the carers who works with Robin had done some baking with him and made a lovely big Simmel Cake for us as a present and one for the staff, isnt that kind! We also spent a nice couple of hours with Simon and Clare, sorry but the scones have all gone, but pleased to hear you enjoyed your Carvery;0);0)

20 Apr, 2014

 

Glad you all had a lovely day,I knew Robin would ! Lol.
What a lovely thought to bake those cakes by one of his carers..has that all gone as well ? not to worry,we have just shared an Easter egg,that Thomas gave us :o)I think he will be five,by the time he gets through the ones he had bought..might have to give him a helping hand :o)
By the way,I found that pink Dicentra you gave me,that I thought I had lost..I don't remember moving it,but I obviously did..it couldn't have got so far away by itself :o)
It was lurking behind a Sidalcea,at the back of the border..Lol.x

20 Apr, 2014

 

Very pretty Carole ... your garden looks lovely :)

20 Apr, 2014

20 Apr, 2014

 

And another one who missed me ... lol :) Who would believe it ...
Well I just haven't had the energy to concentrate on much lately, and everything started to get on my nerves, so I decided to take a break :)
Hope you're all right ...

20 Apr, 2014

 

Sandra havent touched the Simmel Cake we still have scones to finish today! Pleased you have found the Dicentra! Hope Thomas isnt sick with all his Easter Eggs;0)

Hi Hywel, know the feeling it happens to us all from time to time, but nice to have you back again. All is well here and enjoying some lovely April weather;0)
