my garden (revised) part 1


part 2 will contain my rose border, vedgie and fruit plot

this is for the first part of my garden, up to the sheds. i have thought of putting in an archway from the greenhouse, along the side of the pond and up to the sheds.

as i approach the back door my feet tread on my tiled kitchen floor. i am quite pleased with my handywork.

onto my crazy paved patio made from local stone and resting on sand.

against the back wall a spirea. underneath the last resting place of many a child hamster.

in the corner is my rest and recouperation area. time for morning coffee and afternoon tea.

they may be dirty gray but prefer that to the ghastly white when they were made. the red wall plays host to a number of what i presume to be native ferns.

my green house is 8ft x 6ft. just me taking a photo at an angle!

french beans beginning to germinate

tomatoes soon to start flowering, lettice next week, spring onions showing

moving up the garden path as it were you come to another last resting place, this time it is my water feature of front garden bubble bath fame. i will probally dismantle it and use the tubs for some plant or another, as for the pump, the bin.

looking accros to the other side of the garden is my jungle. i wanted a fragrant rose as i came out of the back door and selected roserie de l’hay, want to cram in another 2 if i can. not really i jungle plant, but what the … the ornamental grass clump in the background will reach 7 ft in a year and has lovely winter colour. as you can see i have not finished clearing away the rubbish.

moving left to right

the pond is 900/1000 gallons. hope to replace the forget me knots with some arum iliiies

my assistant!
