This is lovely, you Have sooo much colour, I really like the pond and the woodland area
I didn't realise those tall spiky yellow flowers would grow in the shade - have I got that right?

30 Jun, 2011

 

That was smashing Cristina, totally amazing, how do you find the time to keep it looking so good?
Love the montages too (or whatever they call a group of piccies, Sticki will know)

30 Jun, 2011

Looks great - love how you did those pictures at the start! It is also so cool how we have so many of the same plants - is that red one a Ligularia dentata 'Osiris Fantaisie' - we have one of those with other two - which I love your Ligularia przewalskii spikes - doing great. The salix hakuro nishiki is another fav in my garden you have :))) Creeping Jenny and Heucheras look excellent as it all does - the pond is very nice :))))

It is looking amazing Cristina, the Ligularia are not fox tails that is Eremurus Sticki, as Cris says they love the damp or they wilt like mad, they look very good there, mine do not get enough wet. You have worked wonders in a very short space of time, well done.
