after my Paris trip
Hi everyone! Just been putting photos on my site of trip – sorry some of them round the wrong way! As some of you know I’m as new to this computer lark as to gardening!
Paris. What a beautiful city! Trees everywhere – lining the streets.
Versailles very beautiful and opulent with gardens to match! Formal and lovely but not inspiring to me as Monet’s Garden was. You must go! Wish my mum could’ve. Have come away with lots of ideas and packets of seeds which hopefully transform some dull areas in my garden. Also got a fantastic book there called The Impressionist Garden by Derek Fell with what I hope are workable ideas taken from the paintings and gardens of these artists. I hope to adapt one to put in an archway next year – watch this space!
Am hoping for some good weather now before school restarts so that I can tidy some things up in my garden. Herbs need cutting back or taking out, weeding needed after continous rain and getting ready for bulb planting in september.
Hope you have all been able to enjoy your gardens over the bank holiday weekend?
