The Side garden 19.05.13

I removed four dead shrubs from the side garden (with the help of OH) yesterday, all had gone due to old age. It's hard to see any gaps now so they will not be replaced.

What a lovely backdrop of shrubs all looking lush and lovely.

I agree with Terra and Stroller, it always looks so lush, and private!

I love the pics of your garden which is so well cared for and very pretty indeed. The slopes add to its appeal.

Agree with all the above

We've had several losses this year due to the frost some have left gaps they will need to be filled , problem is any shrub takes so long to 'grow up ' :o(

It is a shame when it happens Amy but I had heavily over planted in the beginning and lots of the shrubs were fighting for space. I will only replant gaps that allow the neighbours a view of my garden now. Buying larger shrubs or trees costs a fortune but sometimes it's worth it to save some of the wait :o)

can't see any gaps, looks lovely - what's that round orangey thing where the bed curves? looks like it has a star-shaped hole, but given my vision ...

It is my star ball Fran, looks great with a candle lit inside (when we get the weather) :o)

lol given the torrential rain we had here recently, seems the weather's a couple of months out -these are our April showers, so summer won't start till about Septemmber, most likely
