Hi Willinilli. Thanks .. This morning a blackbird was actually having a bath in the raised bed... in the wet aubrieta ... Lol.

Hi Paul .. thank you :o)

29 Apr, 2012

 

Just lovely, and there is room for just one more right in the middle, get the catalogues out :))

29 Apr, 2012

 

Lol. Pim ... The gap where I trimmed back the helianthemum ?
Yes, I'll have to find something to go there... :o))

29 Apr, 2012

 

You've got some lovely shrubs TT, and lots of colour. It all looks very nice and interesting.

29 Apr, 2012

 

What a cheeky monkey that Pimp is! - dont take it from him Terra. I thought that was a paving slab in the middle so you could access the bed more easily. It all seems to have come through the rain remarkably unscathed thank goodness.

29 Apr, 2012

 

Thanks Hywel .. :o)))

Hi Poppy ...
the plants at the front are in a raised bed ...
it would be a very high paving ... Lol.

... yes, Pim is cheeky, but nice ... ;o)

Lovely photo, TT but where are Conker and Truffle? We had a little sunshine this afternoon but still breezy. The ducks are not helping my garden at the moment - I thought they had abandoned nest and departed but they all turned up again about 5am this morning, very noisily :)

29 Apr, 2012

 

Thank you, Gee ...
Yes, nice weather for ducks.
Conker and Truffle have a new bright green squeaky toy, so are 'otherwise engaged' ;o)

29 Apr, 2012

 

Wow Terra, still looks gorgeous there.. :-)

29 Apr, 2012

 

Thanks Surreylad ... the rain tried its best to flatten everything, but the plants and shrubs sprang back up defiantly. Lol. ;o)

29 Apr, 2012

 

Exochorda looks perfect,TT One of my favs.

29 Apr, 2012

 

Thanks Meadowland ..

Yes, they are lovely shrubs :o)

29 Apr, 2012

 

Lovely and colourful - It doesn't look like there is a plant out of place! Sadly a few of my shrubs have suffered in the gales we had here last night :O(

29 Apr, 2012

 

Hi Tracey.. Thank you !

29 Apr, 2012

OMG Terratoonie how beautiful does that look. You would never guess its been awful weather it looks like your garden has been under glass. Have you been cheating, is there a sun lamp hiding some where?

29 Apr, 2012

30 Apr, 2012

 

Thanks Carole, Neena, G s, and Pixi ..

1 May, 2012

Hi Linda ... yes, the bench looks inviting ...
I always intend to sit there more, but I end up gardening instead .. Lol.

Thanks, Janey.
Yes, we had lovely sunshine yesterday, but cold and damp again now !

1 May, 2012

Thank you Homebird :o)

6 May, 2012

 

Beautiful garden you have there.so peaceful makes you want to sit in it and just enjoy how lovely it is.Thank you for the link.

7 May, 2012

 

Looks lovely Terratoonie, i have no luck with heathers at all... Im not surprised the blackbird was having a bath in luxury.

8 May, 2012

 

Hi Sylvie ..
Thanks and good luck with planting your Exochorda.

Thank you, Bill ... some heathers e.g.calluna, need ericaceous compost. It could be that your heathers were in the wrong type of soil [not quite like the Railway companies who complain about the "wrong kind of snow" Lol.]

Blackbird obviously thinks I have the right kind of plants for deep sea diving. ;o)

8 May, 2012

 

I think you just have green fingers and blackbird helpers, i planted my heathers surrounded in ericaceous compost and nope all doing badly..

8 May, 2012

 

Just beautiful!

2 Aug, 2012

 

Hi Bill...
I hope your heathers are doing better now.

Thanks Migra ..
Lots of rain this year in the UK ...
... my plants and shrubs are enjoying all the water. :o)

2 Aug, 2012

 

Your garden is gorgeous Terratoonie. Just so pretty in all your pics. Did you build the walls and the little wishing well yourself??

2 Oct, 2012

 

Hi Cosmosjane ..
Thanks .. Yes I built the raised bed from recycled brick sections, and the wishing well is a refurbishment of an heirloom which had been neglected before I received it. I cleaned it and painted it. :o)

2 Oct, 2012

 

Looks great TT. I've done a little dry stone walling in my garden, it's quite easily done (thank goodness) and looks quite rough which is what I like!!!

4 Oct, 2012

 

Thank you ... :o)))
