Beautiful garden Heron and absolutely full to bursting

10 Oct, 2009

 

Edging the lawn with bricks is a biggish job but I never need to edge the lawn now.

10 Oct, 2009

 

Ah...chocolate box scene...lovely

10 Oct, 2009

 

Beautiful heron- one day I would love to have a garden like that.

10 Oct, 2009

10 Oct, 2009

 

Delightful garden that edging really looks good, did you dig the pond yourself heron?

10 Oct, 2009

Gorgeous garden.

10 Oct, 2009

 

Actually you'll have a choice of four home-made wines now Di.

11 Oct, 2009

11 Oct, 2009

 

Lovely garden... are the lawn edge bricks set just below the height of the grass ?

11 Oct, 2009

 

That really is beautiful!! When was it taken?

11 Oct, 2009

 

Valadel, the tall purple spire plant is Lysimachia or purple loosestrife, I pinched it from the local river.

12 Oct, 2009

 

Thanks Heron, I thought it might be, my daughter has it in her pond ( but she paid for hers!) LOL. Me thinks I might go and pinch some of hers

I want a seat on the bus !!

12 Oct, 2009

 

Amazing stuff Heron. A magnificent garden to enjoy. So much love and effort put in and as everyone says, it's a work in progress.

Lovely stuff.

14 Oct, 2009

 

Oh how beautiful, can I squeeze on the bus even if it means sitting on somebody's lap LOL

15 Oct, 2009

Absolutely Madperth - I'd wanna be conscious when I drop by. I wouldn't want to miss it.

16 Oct, 2009

16 Oct, 2009

Wow what a lovely garden and pond

4 Nov, 2009

 

Cor blimey Heron ! Your garden must give you so much pleasure to work in and walk around. Be sure to take some time to sit in it, because we gardeners are notorious for all work and no play aren't we !!!

19 Nov, 2009

 

I love your garden and your house (((-:

19 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks for your kind remarks, both the cottage and garden I've made to suit our needs/likes. It's taken years to get the garden manageable yet nice to look at. The Cottage is a Country cottage in every way. Though small it has solid oak floors and tiled ground floor, muddy boots (and paws) no problem. We have no services like busses ect. but on three sides we have good views.

19 Nov, 2009

 

The perfect cottage with a perfect garden, just the right size.

23 Nov, 2009

 

Your garden is very scenic and peaceful, you should be very proud. I aspire to have something like that.

23 Jan, 2010

 

I often dream of having a garden where trees can replace shrubs and shrubs replace perennials with a stream running through.......I could go on. But contentment is 'our little patch' where eve we are. I often look up at an airliner and think, they can see more from up there but I can see more from down here.

this is stunning heron, so beautifull :o))

5 Mar, 2010

 

Your garden is a DREAM! I so enjoy looking at these photographs! And you are soo right. It takes years to get a garden to look like yours does. Thanks soo much for sharing your peaceful garden with us.

7 Mar, 2010

 

Really beautiful Heron! You have such a lovely garden! I hope mine can look as good as yours one day.

23 Mar, 2010

 

Very lovely garden! Love it! Happy gardening.

30 Jun, 2010

 

glad to see you have put sum stunning pics on of that stunning garden , told u it was lol beautiful ,o and i comeing on that bus as well sure theres plenty more to see.

13 Aug, 2010

 

You have created a beautiful garden....what a lot of effort and planning must have gone into it over the years. Oh to have a garden such as this...dreaming on....lol

27 Aug, 2010

 

Thanks all of you, I appreciate your nice words. As for 'planning' well I'm not good at that, I just stand there with a cuppa and envisage how it may look if, then I move things around. I have to say that it helps when you've others on line willing to advise. This is the first year that I've managed to get it all in flower all Summer. It's taken years lol That said there is a gap after the tulips and before the early summer. I use Wallflowers but they obstruct the herbaceous a bit.

27 Aug, 2010

 

i agree heron pepole on here are brill and ur garden is too. we had our 1st summer were its flowered all summer in spite of the wether . x

ps seems like you are going to have an open day, wth every one comeing on that bus to see it lol ;0)

28 Aug, 2010

 

That is so nice - I love the edging you have done too - the pond is amazing - I think you have same purple flowers we have too

10 Nov, 2010

 

Purple loosestrife, common in the wild but beautiful even when in seed as the foliage turns red.

10 Nov, 2010

 

That's just pure joy!

18 Sep, 2011

 

What a beautiful photo Heron..found it looking for pond ideas. Your pond really does look very natural..quite an achievement! :)) Beautiful planting and I love your edging too!

11 Mar, 2012

 

that is a nice picture, what purple plant do you have growing in the water

28 May, 2013

 

Hi Pondlady, I don't know if heron is still on here, not seen anythiong from him since 2010. It looks to me like Lythrum (loosestrife):-)
