So you have a front and back garden, like me, Terra ?

Hi Louise..
Most of my front garden is around to the right of this photo... towards the road... Nice that the front door doesn't face the road ... Is yours a similar layout ?

21 Jul, 2011

 

Beautiful front garden :)))

21 Jul, 2011

 

What a pretty front garden you have its lovely with scent too

21 Jul, 2011

 

Thanks Michaella and Sixpence ...
The scented Trachelospermum is alongside my waterbutt, so every time I collect rain water, I enjoy a long sniff :o)

21 Jul, 2011

 

TT, I think you should move closer to me in Surrey and come help me create a beautiful front garden like yours. Seriously jealous. I like the way those alpine-y things creep over the path. So pretty.

Hi Sgbabe..
Thanks... we are all packing our bags ..
... and our gardening tools .. now ;o)

Terra, my front is enclosed by hedging and tall shrubs, i'm in a private (and very quiet) road (cul-de-sac) so not much traffic noise.
I have a double fronted house so the garden's the width of it, has a central path and the whole garden's on show.
The back is equally as quiet, and all infront as you look at it - i'm making both gardens 'meander' so that everything isn't viewed at once.

Thanks Sandra...
Real rain works so much better than watering with my can ... even though I use rainwater from the butt ... :o)

21 Jul, 2011

21 Jul, 2011

21 Jul, 2011

Amazing how quickly everything looks so green and healthy after a few days of rainfall ... :o)

21 Jul, 2011

22 Jul, 2011

22 Jul, 2011

 

Sublime.

22 Jul, 2011

 

Hi Frybo ..
Thank you ... this is area is more quiet ... ;o)

22 Jul, 2011

 

A very pretty front garden TT, with some very interesting planting. Love it.

23 Jul, 2011

 

This is the sort of construction I would like: steps down onto the lawn through a large rockery. I can only dream.... Really nice and its lovely to see those blue slate stones. These are the only ones I use on my rasied beds: the colour of the stones contrasts with all the plants and they look great when they are wet.

24 Jul, 2011

 

that is just lovely terra...

24 Jul, 2011

 

Thanks Stroller, Geraniumdad and Surreylad ...
Those blue slate stones were a present from someone who didn't want them in their garden, so I was lucky there :o)

25 Jul, 2011

 

What a splendid view....

27 Jul, 2011

 

Thank you Dotty ...
This is a more secluded area of my front garden. :o)

29 Jul, 2011

 

Looking fresh and nice TT...
Lovely to have a drop of the real stuff...we're gertting some this morning, glad to see it,... it has been oppressive the last coupe of days...

2 Aug, 2011

 

What a pretty garden you have Terra.

4 Aug, 2011

 

Thanks Crissue and Rose ...

The rain freshens up the gardens, doesn't it. :o)

6 Aug, 2011

 

Would love my garden to look like this. Hope my rock garden looks as good when it finally gets finished.

16 Sep, 2011

 

Hi Mysco .. Thank you... :o)

I'm sure your rock garden will look lovely. Nothing wrong with altering things a little as you go along. Move a plant or a rock if it doesn't look quite right, and try to have interest at all time of year ...

16 Sep, 2011

 

Terratoonie:

It looks very lush!

I love the fragrance and flowers of Trachelospermum jasminoides! (I almost want to eat the flowers because they smell so good. lol!) I have one...and it's a very widely grown vine here.

29 Sep, 2011

 

Have got my little Rock Garden up and running now TT, hope it looks as nice as yours does...:)))

29 Sep, 2011

 

Hi Delonix .. Thanks.
Yes, I also love Trachelospermum jasminoides .. I have several growing around my gardens...

You are right ..
... the scent is almost edible isn't it ... Lol. :o)

29 Sep, 2011

 

Hello Crissue ..
I'm sure your rock garden will be lovely ..
takes a little while for the plants to settle in doesn't it
:o)

29 Sep, 2011

 

It does....TT...I took a long time to choose what i wanted, as it runs on from the little garden that edges the Pond, then up to the start of the Woodland bed..so fingers x'd now...

29 Sep, 2011

 

The part we can't control is that some rockery plants spread a lot faster than others .. but it soon becomes obvious which ones are going to grow quickly ! :o)

29 Sep, 2011

 

Very true...time will tell...:)))

By the way OH was looking at your Rock Garden, liked it...then said I like the way she does her smilies...:o)))))

29 Sep, 2011

 

... especially for your OH... with a wink ....

;o))))))))))))))))))

29 Sep, 2011

 

It's very fragrant especially when it cover acres of land. It can fill the air for miles when it starts to bloom in early spring. It's heavenly! :>)

30 Sep, 2011

 

:))))) TT...

30 Sep, 2011

 

you colored the stones or natural...

13 Nov, 2011

 

The stones have natural colour ..
They look especially lovely when in the rain. :o)

13 Nov, 2011

 

Quite excited Terra, have flowers on my Saponaria, in the Rock Garden...

Funny that, Rocks always llok good after rain...

13 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Sue ...
Have you put a pic on GoY of your flowering Saponaria ?

Yes, rocks and gravel look great when wet :o)

13 Nov, 2011

 

No I haven't yet, it only had one at the time, and I didn't want to to tempt fate lol will correct that tomorrow...;))
