August In The Garden

17 comments


Just a few pictures of the gardens on a rather mixed August day, I have managed to take these pictures while the sun was out, hope you enjoy!

The first pictures are of our Bungalow and the front garden, the garden is small but we do have nice views of the surrounding countryside.
The little garden is planted up with a range of perennial plants and evergreen shrubs making an attractive feature throughout the year.

At the back of the Bungalow we have a larger garden with a patio and steps leading onto the main garden area. You will probably notice I have a bit of a mania for pots too lol

This little Acer is one of my favourites and Polly my little Scottie Dog has her resting place here too making it extra special.

The lawn and flower beds are a picture;0)

This is my little Pond, difficult to see with all the growth but there are Frogs in there, so hoping for Frog Spawn again this year!

The Sedums are alaways a pleasure attracting Butterflies and the excitement of watching the flower buds burst into colour!

Thank you for viewing I will give an update later in the year ;0))

Thanks Hywel I have shown a few pictures of the front garden in the past, but mainly the back is where I spend most of my time and of course caring for all the pots which seem to grow in number over night [ I think I have fairies in my garden lol.] ;0))
