Evening peep around my front garden .


It,s poppy time again my old friends have been in the garden for over 25 years ! The weather as not been very kind to them my mishmash is flourishing but a bit on the wild side lots of bees and other insects enjoying it and I have left another part of it go wild grass ,oregano ,small geraniums I rather like it saves on weeding ! Waiting for the lavender and peonies to open hope the weather decides what it wants to do but there we go it’s our climate so let’s just enjoy it .
Ps hope the photos are the right way up and sorry put one in twice senior moment 😀

Spectacular poppies! Do you mow your "wild bit" once a year?

Steragram it's just a sort of banking that we made when we removed a poor lawn and put down gravel we turned over strips of turf to make and shape a banking let it settle along side the gravel then eventually we covered it with any sort of ground cover plants the grass still comes through but it looks lovely swaying in the wind I do cut it back from time to time ,I think I saw Beth Chatto making turf rolls on a program once ...
The weather is beautiful here in Wales today .

Your garden is stunning. The view to die for. I imagine being at the top of a hill will mean the wind can be a problem but you would never think so looking at these photos.

Yes Scotsgran the wind does cause a bit of havoc on the top of the road where I live so the plants have to be hardy but it all added to the fun of gardening :-)

It all looks so well established. I love how all the plants are knitted together and the poppies give that added Zing of colour. Smashing view too.
