Well, I'm amazed at your restraint, Karen! I've just Googled images of it and the colour in the pics varies a lot. Some pics are deep orange, others muted orange. Tell me it'll be pink and buttery yellow please! lol!

Shirley, it will be peachy!! Thanks Paul. Drc, I've told it to head south, but it aint listenin! ;)

Janey, yes, I'm afraid the birds are still pulling out the bark that I used as a mulch five years ago!! Gravel in this bit though, so not so tricky to keep clean. All I do is occasionally pick up leaves that have fallen or been blown there.

Thank you Judy and Wh. It gets dappled sunshine in the evening and WHEN we get some calmer weather, it will be a great place for a glass of wine in the evening!

missed this, what a gorgeous area

Thanks Yorks, I am really enjoying this area. I'm so glad I made it last year, even though I have to water the pots nearly every day, especially in this sunny windy weather!

28 May, 2011

 

like I said its gorgeous, will this wind ever die down, its awful, pots as you say need water every day,

28 May, 2011

 

I hate it so much Yorks. I hope it goes away soon, it's driving me mad. I want to get out, but it's so unpleasant.

I have loads of cosmos that need to go out, but its just to cold to be outside, the wind cuts through you,I seem to spend my time sweeping up the debris from all the trees behind us, why everything lands in our garden I don't know, its so annoying,

28 May, 2011

 

Know what you mean, I get all the litter in my front garden and there's always at least one carrier bag in my back garden if its windy!

28 May, 2011

 

lovely corner, would love to sit there...:))
