you never know from one minute to the next do you?!

thanks nana ~ i thought if i took it from a distance you couldnt see the weeds!

Lovely, Sticki. I am so envious of everyone's lovely green lawns. Dear Millie has made rather a mess of mine, bless her but I wouldn't change her for the world :)

12 Apr, 2012

 

oh, dont worry Gee, you dont need to be envious ~ thats all moss!!!

12 Apr, 2012

 

Looking lovely Sticky :o)

12 Apr, 2012

 

All looking lush Sticki....gardens always look better after the rain I think! Is that a purple Rhoddie...nice colour :)

12 Apr, 2012

 

thank you plantoholic, spring is the best time for this garden ~ more colour before the leaves create quite a lot of shade

im never sure scottish which is a rhodedendron and which is an azalea, this one has the smaller delicate flowers

12 Apr, 2012

 

Neither am I...I think it has something to do with the stamen if my memory serves me right. Either way it's lovely!

12 Apr, 2012

 

Wow that's really vibrant Sticki love it...

12 Apr, 2012

 

thank you, it is covered like this every year for about two weeks, never do anything to it!

thanks SL

That's a great garden, Sticki. That bank up to the trees is my favourite bit. I'd love to see that close up. Could I put in a request?

My front grass looks like that because it is all moss, but the back grass looks even greener - because it's all clover and daisy pads. (Confession time - I like the daisies! )

12 Apr, 2012

 

i like daisies too ~ front and back garden are virtually all moss!! thanks to about 12 oak trees!!!

you want a picture of the back border ~ up to the fence you mean oji?

12 Apr, 2012

 

Yes, please. It looks really interesting.

12 Apr, 2012

 

its not very wonderful, i will see if i can find a picture that shows it; you can tell me how to make it better then.

12 Apr, 2012

 

Its on now Oji

12 Apr, 2012

 

Lovely, how great to have such mature trees behind you too....

12 Apr, 2012

 

they are lovely and i really like them there but they do cause a lot of shade ~ and leaf fall!!!

12 Apr, 2012

12 Apr, 2012

thank you franky and welcome to Goy

i love to cook so herbs would be very good; not much sun here though

13 Apr, 2012

 

Cider with a hint of algae! Yurk!

13 Apr, 2012

 

hmm green cider ~ no thanks!!

13 Apr, 2012

 

Lovely full borders with lots of colour. I think it looks grand.....

15 Apr, 2012

 

thank you HB ~ i do like it, but i always think it could be better!!

i quite fancy making a little shelter in the top right corner, somewhere to sit and watch the birds ~ maybe a willow structure???

15 Apr, 2012

 

A willow structure sounds very nice but you have 2 lovely mature shrubs there.

15 Apr, 2012

 

mmm, there might be room behind the camellia and before the mahonia which is right in the corner ~ there is about 4 foot???

15 Apr, 2012

 

Just think Sticki ....it will all look lovely like this soon.

29 Jan, 2013

29 Jan, 2013
