RAISED BED in the evening.


RAISED BED in the evening.

The back garden is waking up.
I'm pleased with the variegated shrubs.
Heathers and snowdrops are happy. :o)
Can you see the concrete feet ? Lol.

Hi Sandra ... thanks...
A friend made the feet for me ... he isn't in good health now, so they are a lovely souvenir of when he was fitter .. but no, not modelled on the feet of anyone I know !

Hi Mark .. I'm lucky the gnome queue didn't trample all over the heathers. Lol. ;o)

25 Feb, 2012

25 Feb, 2012

 

You definitely live in a different country! All that colour - for February - it's amazing. Like the feet.

25 Feb, 2012

 

Hi Oji ..
The feet are useful for getting near to the raised bed plants... This part of the garden is quite sheltered and I guess that helps bring the colour on sooner :o)

25 Feb, 2012

 

That's very colourful TT ... Nice to have a garden like that in February :o)

25 Feb, 2012

 

What a gorgeous wee scene and it look lovely and lush too :)

Really pretty TT lots of interesting plants and the feet are so useful to stand on to reach for weeding etc. :o)

26 Feb, 2012

 

Hi Amy...
thanks ...
yes the feet are even more useful than I had expected :o)))

26 Feb, 2012

 

Thats beautiful TT, a very natural look. Great view when you are at your computer.

26 Feb, 2012

 

Thanks Bob.
The heathers are doing well this year :o)

26 Feb, 2012

 

lovely vivid colours and raised to bring them closer to the eye, and the wall is such a contrast it adds strongly to the image. Do you intend to plant the wall at a later stage, or "moss" it?

26 Feb, 2012

 

Hi Fran... Thanks.
I built this raised bed some years ago from recycled brick sections ... I keep that part of the wall the sandstone colour.

26 Feb, 2012

 

understandable, it certainly provides a vivid backdrop to the colours above and below!

26 Feb, 2012

 

That looks so pretty, TT, and the wall sets everything off above and below beautifully :)

26 Feb, 2012

 

Glad you agree, Fran.
I resist the temptation to over-plant it.. Lol.

Thank you Gee.
It's one of my favourite parts of my garden :o)

26 Feb, 2012

 

I would never say it was in the evening, lol. full of colour:)

26 Feb, 2012

 

Thanks Kasy... the heathers do glow brightly !
I'm so pleased you're enjoying your new job :o)

26 Feb, 2012

 

I grow heathers in container - they are doing great:) but I think I should repot them soon after flowering:)
Oh, yes - so far so good:)

26 Feb, 2012
