PEBBLE GARDEN


PEBBLE GARDEN

This is the new area I made last year in my back garden.
I'm pleased with the way the colour is coming now...

... aubrieta, rosemary, iberis.

I've just added a close-up picture of this area on my latest blog called A Task for the 'Specialists' ;o)

Óoooh, lovely. Thank you Terratonie and wellcome back, we were missing these wonderful photos. Beautiful. What are those low blue flowers, please?

8 Apr, 2012

 

Hi Katarina .. Thank you.
The pretty purple/blue flowers are aubrieta.

8 Apr, 2012

 

For how long does it bloom like this?

8 Apr, 2012

 

That's very pretty TT. I like the texture the pebbles give the area.
I agree with Katarina. You have been missed ...

8 Apr, 2012

 

gorgeous Terra - this is how I wanted mine - great work!!!

8 Apr, 2012

8 Apr, 2012

 

Thanks Hywel.
I feel better for having taken a short break from GoY :o)

Hi Paul. Thank you...
It takes a while for the new planting to settle.

Katarina .. all the flowers in this photo bloom for many weeks.

Thank you Scottish...
Team Terra back in action :o) x

8 Apr, 2012

 

sorry you were feeling a bit off Terra...your garden is an inspiration to us all..always full of lovely colours and textures...:-)

8 Apr, 2012

 

Thanks Sandra ..
Very kind words ..
I'm perking up again now... :o)

8 Apr, 2012

 

Pleased you are back among us Terra, I was going to P.M you in the morning, your garden is looking splendid as usual, weather here as not been very kind to us gardners snow blizzards, winds and today rain! but you can't keep a keen gardner down lol

8 Apr, 2012

 

Hi TT, such a beautiful border..very much an inspiration :)

8 Apr, 2012

 

Really lovely TT, your garden always looks immaculate no matter which part you show or what season a credit to your hard work - with Conker and Truffle's help of course :o)

8 Apr, 2012

 

I didn't think TT did any of the work, Conker and Truffle do it all. I've never seen any pics of TT working, only her two boys! lol :o))

8 Apr, 2012

 

looks great Terra.

9 Apr, 2012

 

The new area looks amazing TT I love it!:)

9 Apr, 2012

 

I appreciate all the comments.
Beverley ... Thanks ... your own garden border planting is very pretty.
Neena ... Thank you. Very wet gardens today !

9 Apr, 2012

 

the curved shape is lovely and those white pebbles make it so light and bright.

9 Apr, 2012

 

O..Wow! I really like that! :)))

9 Apr, 2012

 

That's really lovely TT. I like it very much indeed. Usually we only see pebbles where there is water...but this is nicer than a rockery I think....I am favouriting it for future reference...great idea! :)

9 Apr, 2012

 

I'm pleased you like it, Sticki and Michaella ...
The Pebble Garden turned out better than I had imagined.
There'll be another close-up photo of this area on a blog soon ...

Thanks Karen...
It ended up sort of a mix between a Pebble Garden and a Rockery.. a bit of a hybrid... Lol.

9 Apr, 2012

 

Terra, what a fantastic view, is it from your window? Your garden always looks so neat and pretty, such an inspiration:-)

9 Apr, 2012

 

Thanks Bornagain.
I can see this from my back windows.
To take this pic, I balanced on a plastic chair on the lawn.
Nearly fell off.. Lol.

9 Apr, 2012

 

We get into the oddest situations to take pics from just the right angle don't we lol...still it was worth it:-)

9 Apr, 2012

 

it looks just fantastic Terra, I love the white pebbles and all the colour there,

9 Apr, 2012

 

Wow what a beautiful area you have created. I feel quite inspired now! I love the aubretia... beautiful.

9 Apr, 2012

 

Thanks Yorks and Shenuk :o)

9 Apr, 2012

 

I did wonder how you had achieved that particular angle TT! lol

9 Apr, 2012

 

Lol. Karen ..
It was a choice between the chair and extremely high-heeled wellies ;o) Lol.

9 Apr, 2012

 

OH, now when are we getting a photo of your extremely high-heeled wellies then? ;)

9 Apr, 2012

 

I don't actually have high-heeled wellies ...
but they would be great for lawn aeration ;o)

9 Apr, 2012

 

;) better than a hollow tine aerator any day!! :)))

9 Apr, 2012

 

Definitely... Lol.

I've put the close-up photo of this Pebble Garden on my blog today ... shows the pebbles/rocks hybrid design mix a bit better ...

... needed lots of wellies today in all the rain !

9 Apr, 2012

Hi Sue ..
Many thanks.
I hope all is well in Vienne. :o)

11 Apr, 2012

 

Not a weed in sight. Lovely. We are plagued with ground elder which flourishes at every opportunity!

11 Apr, 2012

 

Hello Magnoliamad ... Thanks.
That must be very time-consuming and exhausting, trying to win the battle of the ground elder !
I hope you win :o)

11 Apr, 2012

 

Hi Terra, Yep not too bad, can't make up it's mind whether we're actually going to get some rain or not, just a few little showers...here and there...

11 Apr, 2012

 

Looks fab!

12 Apr, 2012

 

Thanks Pix :o)))

12 Apr, 2012

 

Still catching up, TT, your pebbles are lovely and so beautifully clean.

12 Apr, 2012

 

Hi Gee ...
Thanks... This a hot, sunny, dry area, and I think that helps the pebbles keep clean. :o)
